Bernd Wiesberger opened up a commanding four-shot lead on day two of the Shenzhen International before storms saw play suspended for the day.

Here, we take a look at what some of the chasing pack had to say after their second rounds.

Dylan Frittelli (68, -8)

"It was a good round today, another 68 on the cards and one bad mistake but besides that I played great. I have been in contention. Last week was close there on the back nine so I am feeling comfortable under pressure and hopefully I can continue to play well on the weekend."

Thorbjørn Olesen (68, -8)

"To be honest I felt like I hit it a bit better yesterday. I hit a few loose drives today but managed to keep it in play and hit some good wedges. I hit a few really close and made the birdies I needed to make and no mistakes so that was nice to see.  I am a bit tired, started early this morning and it has been very hot here, so I would like to have a little bit of a rest and feel good again so I’m ready to try and shoot a good number tomorrow."

Richie Ramsay (68, -7)

"I played very solid. I hit 17 greens and had lots and lots of chances so four under is nice, sitting tucked in behind a few guys looking good for the weekend. For some reason I tend to play well in China, I enjoy coming out here, it’s just somewhere that I feel like I play good golf. There is definitely a lot of competition around me but this is what I play for, to get in this position for the weekend."

Jordan Smith (69, -6)

"I hit it really well, I just didn’t quite hole the putts I should have but it was very similar to yesterday. I sort of struggled around the turn and bogeyed the 18th but it was nice to get a couple of birdies on the back nine. I am looking forward to it tomorrow, it’s a good field and a good tournament, so it should be fun."

George Coetzee (68, -6)

"I'm feeling pretty good about my game, quite happy with the score, quite a lot of birdies and a nice eagle there on 17. I enjoyed it, the greens are good and the surfaces are good, everything is in pretty good nick so you just have to play your way around the golf course."
