Faultless Saddier, Paisley hold SA Open second round lead

Branden Grace of the South Africa plays a shot on the first fairway during the third round of the 2017 CIMB Classic golf tournament in Kuala Lumpur

Overnight leaders Branden Grace and Chase Koepka failed to kick on and are joined on eight-under by Retief Goosen.

After recording three eagles and three birdies, to go with two bogeys on Thursday, Grace managed just two birdies and a bogey on Friday.

"The finish was awesome after making three birdies in a row on 15, 16 and 17", said Saddier.

Paisley (65) caught a hot streak on the back nine as well, carding six birdies. "I certainly hope that I can keep that trend (of Englishmen winning the SA Open) going". "I have never been in this position before so I am just going to go and do my best".

"I didn't know, I have a joint course record but it's quite cool".

"I am excited for the weekend but there is still 36 holes to play and I must try to stay focused during the last two rounds".

"At the moment it's weird, I feel like I didn't play fantastic". Defending champion Graeme Storm missed the cut by a shot, though, thanks mainly to his opening-round 75.

Saddier, 25, is yet to drop a shot after 36 holes at Glendower Golf Club and finished birdie-eagle-birdie in to shoot into the joint-lead of the second oldest Open championship in the world.

Nearest challenger Kruyswijk, 25, another young golfer eyeing a first European Tour triumph, carded a 67 following a mixed round.

For the second straight day Brett Rumford posted four birdies against three bogeys to qualify for the weekend by two shots but both Scrivener and New Zealand's Josh Geary finished well outside the mark.

Today's round will give the local a good challenge as he will play in the same ball with players in the top five and as the second last ball, where support and pressure from spectators will come hard on him.

Ernie Els, a five-time victor of the South African Open, made the cut after a 70 moved him to 3 under.

But ex-US Masters champions Mike Weir (146) of Canada and Trevor Immelman (149) of South Africa bowed out after the second round.
