Marcus Fraser made a stunning start to the second day of the Madrid Masters, firing three birdies in his opening four holes to take the outright lead.
The Australian – a joint overnight leader alongside Swede Magnus Carlsson and Englishman Paul Broadhurst, who tee off later today – moved three shots clear to seven under after picking up shots at the first, third and fourth.
Jean-Baptiste Gonnet was three shots back on four under overall after birdieing the first and the fourth, while Peter O’Malley birdied two and three to be three under for the tournament.
Miguel Angel Jimenez also started well, picking up a shot on the first to move to three under overall, and Frenchman Francois Delamontagne joined the Spaniard on that score after posting birdies at the first and fifth.
South African James Kamte initially slipped back to two under after bogeying the first, but he responded with a birdie on the next hole.
