Fisher builds two-shot Wales Open lead

Ross Fisher

NEWPORT, Wales — Englishman Ross Fisher took a two-stroke lead at the Wales Open Friday after shooting a 5-under par 66 in the second round at Celtic Manor.

Overnight leader Lee Slattery of England could only manage a par 72 to remain at 4 under at 138 for second.

Fabrizio Zanotti of Paraguay holds a share of third place after shooting a 69 along with Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee (68) and England's Chris Wood (67).

The 31-year-old Fisher said he was inspired by his return to the Twenty Ten course, where he was a part of Europe's 2010 Ryder Cup victory over the United States.
