Ewen Ferguson fired a 64 featuring an eagle at the par-5 18th, eight birdies and a double bogey at the par-4 16th to take a two-shot lead into the weekend at the BMW International Open.

The Scot, who has not missed a cut since January, has had issues with vertigo recently and withdrew from the European Open last month but came back strong in Munich.

"It’s been quite tough, struggling with vertigo," said Ferguson. "It makes you feel so funny.

"You get days where you feel totally normal and think you can play again, like I tried to do in Hamburg and then it came on again and I was like ‘oh no’.

"When you’re on the sidelines watching the golf, you realise how lucky you are to play it. I couldn’t wait to get back out.

"My first event back at KLM, I was loving it to be honest. Last week in Italy was nice. The weather’s been so good here, I love Munich, and I just feel like I’m enjoying it a lot more."

"I was actually playing so well I started hitting it a bit further and on 16, I hit it too far into the middle of the bunker, spun it back and made double and I was thinking there’s no point getting that angry because I’m swinging it so well and the putter felt good," he continued.

"You get days where you feel like everything goes your way. I hit a couple of bad putts that caught the lip and went in, that’s just how it works out sometimes. It’s nice."

France's Romain Langasque shot 65 to take solo second place at 11-under.

England's Jordan Smith and Matthew Southgate produced rounds of 67 and 65 respectively for a share of third place at 8-under alongside Patrick Reed of the USA (69), Austria's Bernd Wiesberger (67) and overnight leader David Micheluzzi who double bogeyed the par-4 5th and made two more bogeys for a 70.

Germany's Bernhard Langer, playing in his final event on the DP World Tour, shot rounds of 71 and 73 and failed to make the cut.
