Larrazabal joins clubhouse leaders in Cologne

COLOGNE, Germany (AP) Pablo Larrazabal shot a 9-under 63 for a share of the clubhouse lead in the second round of the BMW International Open on Friday.

The Spaniard made nine birdies including five in a row to match the best round so far, and join overnight leaders Danny Willett and Rafa Cabrera-Bello on 12 under overall.

Cabrera-Bello double hit for his first missed shot of the week on the par-5 seventh hole but made five birdies, while Willett, the 2012 tournament winner, stayed bogey-free to match his Spanish playing partner’s 4-under 68.

Emiliano Grillo of Argentina was challenging the leaders, but yet to complete his round.

Paul Waring shot seven birdies and an eagle to complete a 63. The Englishman was in a three-way tie for eighth on 9 under.
