The Spaniard, whose round will not enter the record books due to preferred lies being allowed on the rain-softened Mount Edgecombe fairways, shot seven birdies and two eagles to join England’s Matthew Baldwin on 11 under par.Another three hours of play was lost to rain on Friday morning, which added to the lengthy delays on Wednesday and Thursday forced organisers to reduce the event to 54 holes.
Several players had to finish their first rounds when play did resume at 09:00, but nobody was able to surpass Daniel Brooks' eight under par 62 from the opening day.
However, first South African Oliver Bekker and then Campillo soon raced past the Englishman when they went out for their second rounds following a quick turnaround.Bekker birdied the tenth – his first – then leapt into the lead with an eagle at the long 12th.
Qualifying School graduate Brooks had not begun his second round when the leaders reached the clubhouse, and was likely to have to return early on Saturday morning to complete it.South Africa’s Colin Nel matched Campillo’s 59 – an improvement of 18 shots on his opening round propelling him from 138th into the top 20.
