After inclement weather interrupted the first day's play at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, the players managed to catch up and finish the second round on schedule. Overall, Round 1 produced 15 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 71.87, whilst Round 2 produced 22 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 69.97. Jamie Donaldson leads on -11 with Ryan Moore and Henrik Stenson following behind on -8. We analyse their performances and round up the half way Genworth Statistics leaders.

Jamie DONALDSON -11

Jamie Donaldson converted seven birdies against a single bogey on his way to a second round 66, to lead by three at the half way stage. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 38 year old Welsh golfer is performing extremely well in each department of the game, including ranking 4th for Driving Accuracy (with 18/28 fairways), 3rd for Greens in Regulation (with 27/36 greens) and 2nd for Putts per Round (with 53 putts in total). Most impressive of all, the two-time European Tour winner has both accumulated the most birdies and dropped the fewest shots over the Sun City course.

Henrik STENSON -8

Henrik Stenson converted five birdies on his way to a bogey free second round 67, placing second alongside Moore going into the weekend. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 37 year old Swedish golfer is also performing very well in each department of the game, including ranking 3rd for Driving Distance (with a huge 324 yard average) and 1st for Scrambles (with 9/10 up and downs for par). Matching the leader, the eight-time European Tour winner has dropped just one shot over the first two days and is surely ready to pounce over the weekend.
