Schwartzel, Madsen share lead at Alfred Dunhill

Charl Schwartzel and Morten Orum Madsen share the lead after two rounds at the European Tour’s Alfred Dunhill Championship.

Defending champion Schwartzel shot a second straight 4-under 68 on Friday to join Madsen on 8-under 136 at Leopard Creek in northern South Africa.

Denmark’s Madsen added a 71 to his opening-round 65 to stay on course for a second straight title. He overtook Schwartzel to win the South African Open on Sunday, the season-opening event on the tour’s 2014 Race to Dubai.

England’s Ross Fisher and another Dane, Soren Hansen, are tied for third and a shot behind the leaders heading into the weekend.

John Daly looked set to miss the cut in his second tournament back from elbow surgery after a 3-over 75.
