Lorenzo-Vera maintains lead in China

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIJING – France’s Michael Lorenzo-Vera shot 3-under 69 Friday to take a one-stroke lead over England’s Richard Finch and Ireland’s Damien McGrane after the second round of the China Open.

The 23-year-old Lorenzo-Vera, in his first season on the European Tour, had an 8-under 136 total on the Beijing CBD International Golf Club course.

“I’m super happy,” Lorenzo-Vera said. “Yesterday it was quite hard for me to get to sleep as I was thinking too much about what might happen. I might always look super relaxed but the hands are always shaking. It took nine holes to get relaxed. Normally it takes three holes but not today. I suppose the weekend will be harder.”

McGrane chipped in for an eagle on the 13th hole.

“I have played a lot of good golf this season and it is a long year,” said McGrane, who turned 37 on Sunday. “I hope to continue and I am still waiting for an opportunity to win my first tournament.”

Austria’s Markus Brier, the winner last year at Shanghai Silport, was 4 under after a 69 in the event sanctioned by the European and Asian tours and the China Golf Association.
