Stenson Retains Lead Going in to Final Round at BMW Asian Open

Stenson stays one shot clear in the BMW Asian Open
Henrik Stenson will take a one shot lead into the third round of the BMW Asian Open at the Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club. The Swede was one of 37 players who had to return to complete their second rounds on Saturday morning after the threat of lightning brought an early end to play on Friday night.
Lightning strikes to stop Stenson in Shanghai
When he is in the groove, it is often said that it might need an act of God to stop him and that was exactly what happened to Henrik Stenson in the second round of the BMW Asian Open. Leading by one shot and over a ten foot putt for birdie on the 18th green, the Swede was forced to abandon play for the day by gathering thunder and lightning storms.

Stenson grabs the early lead in the BMW Asian Open
(Reuters) - Henrik Stenson took advantage of perfect conditions to shoot a five-under-par 67 for a one-stroke lead early in the opening round of the BMW Asian Open. The 30-year-old Swede struggled to a share of 20th in high winds and sand storms at the China Open in Beijing last week and found the balmy weather at the Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club much more to his liking.
Montgomerie unconcerned by swings of fortune
(Reuters) - Scotland's Colin Montgomerie has learned to accept the ups and downs of form and says his recent run of missed cuts is not weighing on his mind as he prepares for this week's BMW Asian Open. With last year's winner Ernie Els of South Africa not defending his title at the Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club, Montgomerie is one of the favourites to carry off the title at the co-sanctioned $1.8 million tournament with the Asian Tour, which starts on Thursday.
Montgomerie on a Mission in BMW Asian Open
Scot Colin Montgomerie is hoping for a change in fortune when he tees off at the US$1.8 million BMW Asian Open tomorrow. Montgomerie, an eight-time European Tour Order of Merit champion, has been plagued with poor putting over the past month but he hopes that Asia will be the turning point of his game, starting at the Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club this week.
