Day two digest: 2021 Porsche European Open

Everything you need to know from day two at Green Eagle Golf Courses.

Maverick Antcliff

Maverick made his mark, Schwab extended his impressive run and there were a couple of impressive turnarounds in round two of the 2021 Porsche European Open.

Here is everything you need to know from Sunday in Hamburg.

Southgate keen to make the right impression

Matthew Southgate will be looking to land his first European Tour title after joining Maverick Antcliff in a share of the lead heading into the final round. However, the 32-year-old from England is as concerned with upholding golf's values as he is his performance. “It's more about looking after what's important to me,” he said. “Look smart, be a gentleman, enjoy it, make sure the kids and the spectators enjoy watching it and that's more important for the game really.”

Schwab quickly becoming the king of consistency

They say class is permanent, but form appears to be as well for Matthias Schwab. The Austrian has now made 12 cuts out of 12 this season and, with five of those finishes in the top ten, looks ominously placed heading into the final round on one under.

Campillo climbs the leaderboard

After an opening 78 Jorge Campillo was probably more concerned with making the cut than putting himself in contention, but the Spaniard did just that with six birdies in a stunning 66.

Veerman's remarkable turnaround

Having failed to make the weekend in Denmark after a frenetic journey from successfully qualifying for the U.S. Open, Johannes Veerman looked set for another missed cut after carding an opening 81. Remarkably the American improved by 15 shots on Sunday and his stunning 66 saw him safely through to Monday's final round.

Apologies, Maverick

Well over 1,000 bogeys had been made by the time Antcliff reached the 14th tee. Remarkably, at that stage, the Australian had not dropped a shot all week. Our Twitter admin noticed, mentioned it to 420,000 followers and you can probably guess what happened next...

Then he narrowly missed out on a new Porsche...
