Davies takes 2-shot lead in Morocco
Monday, January 31, 2011
RABAT, Morocco – Rhys Davies of Wales has shot an 8-under 64 to take a two-shot lead on the second day of the Trophee Hassan II.
Davies, who trailed overnight leader Nick Dougherty of England by two shots following his opening 68, had eight birdies on the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat to move to 13 under.
Frenchman Thomas Levet shot a 7-under 65 to go to 11 under, tied for second place with Ignacio Garrido of Spain and Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa.
The opening two days are being played on two different courses – a longer Red course and a shorter Blue – and in a pro-am format before the leading 65 professionals play alone on Saturday and Sunday on the Red.
