Round 2 of the Alfred Dunill Championship produced 55 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 72.95. Morten Ørum Madsen and Charl Schwartzel lead on -8 with Fisher and Hansen following behind on -7. We analyse their performances and round up the half way Genworth Statistics leaders.

Morten Ørum MADSEN -8

Morten Ørum Madsen recorded a mixed bag of scores, including one eagle, five birdies, two bogeys and two double-bogeys on his way to a second round 71. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 25 year old Danish golfer has only hit 50% of the fairways so far and his Par 3 Scoring is comparatively poor at 3.25. But with some great putting and plenty of birdies, last week’s winner has been able to cope with a few mistakes and maintain a tie for the lead going into the weekend.

Charl SCHWARTZEL -8

Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 29 year old South African is averaging 301 yards for Driving Distance and hitting 72.2% of the Greens in Regulation, but most impressive of all he ranks 1st for both Putts per Round and 1 Putts per Round (accumulating a total of 20 single putts over the first two days).
