Rozner claims Dubai lead in title defence bid

News

Defending champion Antoine Rozner claimed a one-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Dubai Championship.

The Frenchman carded a bogey-free second round 64 to move to 15 under for the tournament as he continued his love affair with the Fire Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates where he won his inaugural title just under a year ago.

Rozner enjoyed a solid start before finding great form, where he birdied five of his last six holes to take the outright lead.

First-round leader Joachim B. Hansen of Denmark was a shot behind alongside Italian Francesco Laporta on 14 under, with Finland’s Kalle Samooja in fourth, two shots off the lead.

English pair Paul Waring and Tommy Fleetwood were tied in fifth on 12 under.
