South Africa's Brandon Stone proved why he is regarded as one of the promising young talents in world golf as the 20-year-old rocketed into the lead midway through his Challenge Tour debut at the Finnish Challenge, thanks to a six-under 66.

The Pretoria native, who received the Phil Mickelson Award for best college freshman in the USA last year, has been spoken of in glowing terms after an amateur career, which yielded an incredible 18 titles.

Stone claimed a top-10 finish in his debut on the European Tour as a pro at June's BMW International Open, and he is now in the driving seat for a maiden title in Finland.

He began the second day a shot off the lead and, in more difficult conditions at Kytaja Golf, in Hyvinkaa, he carded another bogey-free round to move to 13-under for the tournament.

The joint first leader Lemke added a four-under 68 to his opening 64.
