David Law loses Lumine lead in Q School Stage 2, Round 2 in Spain

David Law fell out of the lead and into a tie for third place at the halfway stage of the European Tour Qualifying School Stage 2 four-round event at Lumine, Tarragona, one of four Spanish venues being used to produce 17 qualifiers from each for the Final Q School.
The Aberdonian shot a 69 for 134 (eight under for the par-71 course), one behind the new joint leaders, England's Charlie Bull (65-68) and Billy Hemstock (66-67).
Ross Kellett, like Law a Paul Lawrie Golf Centre attachment, is T6 on 135 after a second-round 69.
A third Paul Lawrie Golf Centre man, Portlethen's Sam Kiloh, shot a 689 for 141 to be T47.
Jamie Savage of Cawder had a 69 for 142 and T51.
Daniel Young's two 72s have the Perth player sharing 65th place on 144.
Comrie's Wallace Booth is T18 after two rounds (67-64 for 141) at El Saler, Valencia.
He is five behind the joint leaders on 136, Christopher Carstensen (Germany) 65-71 and Fabien Marty (France) 64-72.
Former British boys champion Ewen Ferguson from Bearsden pulled himself up to T34 on 143 on the back of a 69 today.
Chris Robb (Meldrum House) repeated his opening 73 and his 146 tally has him languishing in T54 posiiton.
Dumfries amateur Liam Johnston plummeted to T62 with a 78 for 148.
Worse off is rookie pro Jack McDonald from Ayrshire with 78-75 for 153 and a T77 position.
Former Scottish amateur champion and past Walker Cup player Grant Forrest of Craigielaw is hanging on in there in the top 10 at Las Colinas, Alicante.
Forrest had a second-round 68 for 135 and is tied for sixth place behind the three men sharing the halfway lead on 133: Gary Hurley (Ireland) 69-64, Oscar Lengden (Sweden) 69-64 and Andrew Maestroni (Italy) 67-66.
Paul Ferrier (68-70) and Peter Whiteford (70-68) are sharing 23rd spot on 138.
Blairgowrie's Bradley Neil's 69-72 has him T38 on 141.
Daniel Kay (Dunbar) is T64 on 143 (72-71) .
Scott Drummond has had rounds of 75 and 73 for 148 and a T71 position in a field of 80 players.  
At Panoramica, Castellon, Chris Doak dropped from T13 after the first round to T42 after a second-round 73, not a bad score by any means but it underlines how competitive the Q School is. You simply have to score under par in a round or you lose ground, sometimes a lot of ground.
Doak, 11 shots behind English leader Laurie Canter, a pair of 65s for 12-under 130), is still the best place Brit at the Castellon venue.
Jack Doherty pulled himself up a bit with a 70 for 143 and a T48 placing.
Andrew McArthur slipped back with a 74 for 145 and a T57 position.
Paul Shields too went backwards instead of forward with a 74 for 146 and T66.
The little known Scot, Tom Higson, is on T76 with rounds of 76 and 74 for 150.
