Brooks opens up ten shot lead in Morocco

December 10th, 2009

Daniel Brooks recorded a stunning second round 63 to break the course record he set in the opening round of the Samanah Masters 2009 Satellite Tours Grand Finale in Morocco, leading by ten strokes ahead of the final round at 17 under.

Brooks (pictured) was five shots clear from his course record opening round of eight under par, and he wasted little time in extending his advantage in the second round with three birdies and an eagle in his opening seven holes. Two bogeys sandwiched another birdie at the ninth, but once again he tore down the back nine, following the six birdies from his opening round with three birdies and an eagle to shoot a magnificent nine under par round that should see him secure the title and €10,000 winner’s cheque.

James Ruebotham is one of two players fighting for second spot at seven under par, following his opening round of 69 with a 68 that included five birdies. Order of Merit winner Scott Jamieson is two strokes behind Ruebotham in a three-way tie for fifth with a second round, one stroke ahead of fellow Scotsman Jack Doherty who is tied for eighth after consecutive rounds of 70.

Another Scotsman, Elliot Saltman, shot a four under par second 68 to move to three under par for the tournament, and is joined by three other EuroPro men – George Woolgar, Nicky Harris and Andrew Thorpe.
The final round is underway in Marrakesh, with Brooks teeing off at 11.15am. [url=!20!N!N!C!Y!2!!~noheadings=N~nomessages=N~season=2009~style=00~groupties=Y~bordersize=1~pr=Y~textout=N~cardlink=Y~winfocus=Y~]Click here to follow the action.[/url]
