Colsaerts shares lead in Stockholm

Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts came from five behind and shared the lead in the Nordea Scandinavian Masters with eight holes to go at Bro Hof Slott near Stockholm today.

After torrential overnight rain delayed the start by four and a half hours, Colsaerts went to the turn in 32 to catch Swede Richard Johnson on nine-under-par.

Johnson had been joint overnight leader with KJ Choi, but the Korean went out of bounds with his opening drive and managed only an outward 39.

So did Open champion Louis Oosthuizen after resuming just one behind and it was Argentina’s Rafa Echenique who was breathing down the neck of the two leaders.
