Jordan Smith produces more Munich magic

Jordan Smith maintained his fine record at Golfclub München Eichenried as a second-round 67 put him in a strong position heading into the weekend at the BMW International Open.

The Englishman carded his tenth under-par round in Munich from 14 attempts, having finished in the top ten in his past two appearances.

Smith has won in Germany before at the 2017 European Open and is confident he knows the key to further success.

"There's a lot of holes that suit my eye and I think if you drive it well and your iron play is good you do well here because you can take advantage of the par fives," said Smith, who has picked up six shots on the par fives in rounds one and two.

"I think taking advantage of those and a few of the longer par fours where guys are making five and you might make four or even three."

Starting on the tenth, Smith made a two-putt gain on the par-five 11th, sandwiched a bogey on the 14th with approaches to tap-in range at the 13th and 15th and holed from 27 feet on the 17th.

He then bogeyed the third but hit smart second shots into the fourth and fifth and got up and down on the par-five sixth.

"I'm really happy," he said. "I holed some lovely putts out there today and yesterday.

"I just didn't quite drive it as well as I did yesterday so we'll go and do a little bit of work out on the range but overall really, really happy.

"It is at times easy to get it close to the pins here but when you've got a wedge in your hands it's tricky because you've got to think about the spin and the wind so it is quite tricky getting them close to the pins."
