Fasth leads after round-2

Alveslohe:

Niclas Fasth of Sweden set the halfway lead after he shot a six under par 66 in the Deutsche Bank Players Championship on Saturday. Round 2 of the championship got underway after a slight delay due to poor weather. Carrying over his form from last week's British Open, Bernhard Langer shot a four under 68, to leave him on four under. Great day 'Wild Thing' John Daly had a fabulous day, scorching round in an eight under par 64, which included eight birdies and no bogeys. This leaves the big American on six under par, tied for seventh, just four shots off the lead. Michael Campbell was one of the joint overnight leaders after a first round 65. The US Open winner wasn't on top form in round two, but still carded a one under par 71 that leaves him in a fine position just two shots behind the leader. Remarkable recovery Welshman Bradley Dredge, followed his opening round of 66 with a three under par 69, a remarkable recovery considering he lost a ball with his very first shot in the 2.4 million Euro event. But the man setting the pace was Fasth. He shot a round of 66 that saw him go out in 35 shots, and then pick up five birdies on the back nine. That leaves the Swede sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard on ten under par. (AP)
