    Thaworn Wiratchant
    Thailand's Thaworn Wiratchant tees off on round two

    Day two of the MCB Tour Championship, hosted by Constance Belle Mare Plage, didn’t disappoint. In near perfect conditions a number of players threw their proverbial hat into the ring with the hope of taking top honours come close of play on Sunday.

    First out the blocks was Tim Thelen from the U.S.A who started with four consecutive birdies to turn in four under, unfortunately his form didn’t continue on the back nine and he signed for a four under par 68. Broadhurst, Williams and Miguel Angel Martin all shot five under par to move up the leader board. Ireland’s Mark McNulty consolidated yesterday’s six under with a solid four under par leaving him in third position. Leader from day one, Peter Fowler, kept his foot firmly on the accelerator with eight birdies and only two bogeys. That left him at 13 under par atop the leader board with the biggest mover of the day Thailand’s Thaworn Wiratchant.

    The diminutive Thai is no stranger to the leader board with 18 wins on the Asian tour. Matching Fowler’s eight birdies with only one bogey he shot 65, the low round of the day, to share the lead. With his calm demeanour and local conditions similar to Thailand he will be a strong contender come the final day.

    The John Jacobs trophy is also wide open with order of merit leader Clark Dennis sitting on five under par. Numerous permutations are possible including South Africa’s Chris Williams in with a shout, currently in second place in the order of merit and ahead of Dennis in the tournament. It’s all to play for on the third and final day of the MCB Tour Championship in Mauritius.
