Defending champion Bernd Wiesberger carded a second round 65 to reach 11-under and take the lead into the weekend at the Made in HimmerLand presented by FREJA.

“I didn’t start great. I felt decent. Bit disappointed with the finish today, felt like I could have gone a few deeper actually but my game was good and I’m happy with round two.

“I’m feeling good and hopefully ready for as good a weekend as the first two days.

“It’s Friday morning, just push on, push forward and hit good, decisive golf shots. Especially the way I played the front nine, which was my back nine today, I felt like there were a lot of chances coming up and I really tried to push forward and give myself a lot of looks. I didn’t do it quite as well as yesterday but it was good enough for a decent round today.”

Two shots behind him is fellow Austrian Matthias Schwab who signed for a 66 after a spectacular par save at the 18th where he drove into the trees to his left and had to play out on to the wrong fairway.

“I had the rights going with my driver on the back nine and I guess I just tried to over-correct it with that tee shot and it went way left.

“I was blocked pretty much any direction except for the one going on the second hole, I didn’t even see the option, my caddie kind of discovered it and he paced off how far I could go. Hit a wedge up there and then 85 metres he paced it off again. He did some great work on this hole and it was nice to sink that putt.

“I made some nice putts, especially the one on the last. It is always nice to finish on a high so I hope I can take that into tomorrow.

“The start of the season has been good, some really solid top-ten finishes, I have made every cut so far this year, which is something to be a little bit proud of so things are going okay.

“I think it will be nice to play with Bernd, it has been a while since we played together. I know him quite well, he knows me quite well, so it will be a fun round.”

Behind them at 8-under is Sweden’s Alexander Björk whose 63 included a hole-in-one on the 16th.

19th Hole
By GT Editor

Made HimmerLand 2021 R2

“It was 92 metres to the pin, a little into the wind, hit a 56 degree straight at the pin. I think it was up a bit in the hill and came back in the hole. I watched a couple of those in previous years here, so it was fun to do one myself. I have made four in practice rounds but first in a tournament.

“I feel like I have played pretty well the last couple of months, a lot better than the last two years so it feels like it is going in the right direction. I have been playing well but not scored too well, so the game is in good shape now and I just need to stay patient for the scores to come.

“It is a good position for me going into the weekend two shots behind Bernd and hopefully I can peg it back. I have probably played 40 competitive rounds on this course, it was always the final tournament on the Nordic Tour when I played it here, and I have played also on the Challenge Tour and a couple times on the European Tour, so I think I have played this course in any condition.”
