Overnight European Tour Qualifying School finals leader Wakefield maintained his place at the top with a second successive 69.

It was Norwegian Lars Petter Brovold who grabbed the limelight however as he fired an 11-under-par 61 to equal the lowest ever score posted in the tour school finals.

Brovold conjured seven birdies and two eagles to shave 18 shots off his opening 79 to come surging up to fourth on 140.

The 25-year-old, who only joined the professional ranks two days ago, said: “This was the best round I’ve ever had.

“After a first round 79 I came out today knowing that I could do a lot better. I stayed relaxed and just kept hitting good shot after good shot and holing my putts.”
