AMERICAN'S 63 IN TURKEY PUTS HIM THREE AHEAD IN TURKEY

                                        The unmistakable backswing of John Daly.

JOHN DALY CELEBRATES FIFTH 

WEDDING-TO-BE BY TAKING LEAD


"Big, bad" John Daly celebrated his engagement today (Friday) to his long-time girl friend Anna Cladakis by surging into a three-stroke lead with a round to go in the PGAs of Europe's Beko Classic over Gloria Golf Club's Old Course at Antalya in southern Turkey.
Daly, four times married and winner of the US and British Opens a long time ago, is on 15-under-par 129 after rounds of 66 and 63 - his best sustained rounds of good scoring for many a long day.


Daly started the day with a birdie on the first followed by three regulation pars.  But then the American notched things up a gear with birdies at five, six and nine to go out in four-under.
Then John had a three-hole birdie streak through 10-11-12, followed by a birdie at 15 and another at 17 (his ninth birdie) to come back in 30 for a bogey-free 63.
The American's nearest rival is the first-round leader,Englishman Chris Gane who shot a nine-under 63 in the first round but could manage "only" a 69 in the second for 132. He had a bogey at the 14th.
Former Open champion Darren Clarke was in second place after an opening 64 but he subsided by 13 shots to a 77 for joint 14th position on 141.
Raymond Russell, the only Scot in the field and the 2010 winner of this tournament, is sharing eighth place on 139 with scores of 66 and 73.


The Team Pro-Am competition continues to be led by team Gloria (Fahir Telli, Dr. Nurettin Katiranci and Hatice Cetindere) with a total of 176 pts (-32) after a second-round total of 84 pts in conjunction with professional for the day, David Griffiths.
Still in second place, with the same Round 2 score of 84 points and a total of 173 points (-29), are GOLFIST (Esra Demirsoy, Ian Randell and Angus Mackenzie) today assisted by professional Adam Gee.
The final round will see the top 16 teams and professionals join forces on Gloria‚Äôs New course to battle it out for the Team Pro-Am honours and the Individual Professional prize fund of $80,000.
