PGAs of Europe international team championship Day 2


Scotland are lying joint ninth in a field of 24 countries after two rounds of the PGAs of Europe international team golf championship at Roda Golf Club, Murcia in south-east Spain.

Colin Gillies had a three-under-par 69, five shots better than his opening effort, while Robert Arnott repeated his opening 72. Mark King, 80 on the first day, had another non-counting effort, a 77, in the best two from three daily scores format.

The Scots are on level par 288, nine shots behind leaders England who have a two-shot advantage over Wales at the top of the leaderboard.

Wales turned up the heat in the Spanish sunshine to cut England's first-round lead. Jason Powell led the way for Wales by firing a four-under par 68 while team-mates Andrew Barnett and James Lee both finished under par, carding rounds of 70 and 71 respectively.

England's Paul Simpson, who had opened with a six-under-par 66, carded a 71, the same as team-mate Jeremy Robinson for a 142 round-two total.

Wales's achievement in reducing England's daunting advantage will have encouraged France and Holland, who share third place on 285, as well as Switzerland and Finland, a shot further back in joint-fifth.

Par 288 (4x72, two from three individual scores to count daily).
