John Murphy is in sixth place three shots off the lead after the second round of the Big Green Egg German Challenge.

The Irish golfer shot a round of 66 on Friday, five strokes better than his first round to finish seven under. He is joined on that mark by Frenchman Felix Morey.

The second-round joint leaders at Wittelsbacher Golfclub are Spaniards Alejandro Del Rey and Manuel Elvira, as well as Poland’s Mateusz Gradecki.

Del Rey recovered from a triple-bogey on his first hole to post a six-under second-round 66. Gradkey shot a 68, one shot better than Elvira’s 69.

Del Rey, who holds the record for the lowest round in European Challenge Tour history after posting a 14-under-par 58 at the 2021 Swiss Challenge, was delighted with the mental resilience he showed during the second round in Germany.

“I couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start,” he said. “I wasn’t nervous or anything it was just a bad swing on a tough hole. I had to mentally reset with some pars and then I started making birdies.”

Co-leader Gradecki kicked-off his second round in style with a hole-out eagle on the first and was happy to reap the rewards of his hard work on the practice green.

“I started with a hole out eagle on the first hole which was a nice bonus,” he said. “My putts weren’t great to begin with, but I was patient and the birdies started coming. There wasn’t much wind and the greens were acceptable so it was definitely scoreable there.”

Overnight leader Tadeáš Tetak sits in fourth place at nine under par, while Frenchman Robin Sciot-Siegrist is fifth.
