Li Haotong remains one shot clear at the top of the BMW International Open leaderboard after a 67 on the weather-affected second day.
It was a tale of two nines for early starter Li at Golfclub München Eichenried on Friday, as he made an eagle, four birdies and two bogeys on the front side before carding one birdie and eight pars after the turn.
The Chinese star was already in the clubhouse on 15 under par by the time play was suspended for almost two hours due to the threat of lightning at 3:46pm local time.
When the second round resumed, Ryan Fox closed to within one shot of Li after putting the finishing touches to a spotless 64, which contained an eagle and six birdies.
Daan Huizing was alone in third on 12 under after closing his second-round 69 with a birdie, while a brilliant burst of scoring following the suspension that had Thomas Pieters join Jordan Smith on 11 under.
The best-placed South Africans are Daniel van Tonder (nine under), Wilco Nienaber (eight under) and Dean Burmester (seven under).
Starting the day with a one-shot lead, Li showed signs of the form with which he equalled the course record of 62 on day one, holing from almost 20 feet for a birdie at the short 2nd.
After giving the shot straight back on the 3rd, Li birdied the 5th before firing an eagle at the 6th for the second day in a row.
Another bogey followed at the 7th but Li bounced back in style, rolling in his birdie putt from 26 feet at the 8th before spinning his approach at the 9th to four feet and sinking the putt for the fourth birdie of his front nine.
A two-putt birdie on the 11th took Li to 15 under par and a big par save from 10 feet at the 17th kept him there.
Li closed his second round with a par to set a testing clubhouse target, with no one able to catch him.
