Foster, Derksen share lead

The Belfry:

Dutchman Robert-Jan Derksen battled against heavy rain to join Briton Mark Foster at the top of the leaderboard after the second round of the British Masters at the Belfry on Friday.

The pair were on seven-under-par 137, a stroke better than British trio Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Sam Walker, overnight pacesetter Martin Erlandsson of Sweden and Dane Soren Kjeldsen.

Foster set the early target after a morning of high winds at the Ryder Cup venue, carding the day's joint-best score of six-under 66, and Derksen matched him with a 68, finishing his round just before the siren went to signal a 15-minute suspension while the downpour subsided.
