Day two digest: 2020 Hero Open

Everything you need to know from day two at Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club.

Sam Horsfield

Horsfield and Garcia Rodriguez led the way, two over-50s went close to aces and a malfunctioning buggy stopped play.

Here is everything you need to know from day two in the Forest of Arden.

Horsfield flying low on Friday

Sam Horsfield is making a habit of going low, having carded a 61 - on the Friday - on his way to a top ten finish at last week's Betfred British Masters. The 23-year-old from England made a flawless 63 on Friday to grab a share of the lead alongside Sebastian Garcia Rodriguez, including a holed approach shot on the fourth.

Jiménez comes close to hole-in-one

Nobody has made more European Tour appearances than Miguel Ángel Jiménez, and the 56-year-old almost marked his record 707th appearance with an 11th ace. It wasn't to be on the 18th but a level-par 72 leaves Jiménez eight under and still in contention to provide a fairytale finish to his memorable week.

Campbell also rolls back the years

Miguel was not the only man rolling back the years, with 51-year-old New Zealander Michael Campbell almost holing his tee shot on the 15th. The former U.S. Open winner carded a 71 to make his first European Tour cut since 2013.

Canter comes up short

A perfect read, a perfect shot and yet Laurie Canter's ball finishes one revolution short of the hole. Answers on a postcard for how this stayed up please.

Mechanical problems stop play

Is that the hooter going off to warn of approaching thunderstorms? No, it's a malfunctioning buggy.
