Campillo is left alone at The Belfry; Walters continues to lead

Extremadura, at -2, was the only one of the four Spaniards, in addition to him Sebastián García, Cañizares and Larrazábal, who made the cut. The South African commander is still in the lead with -9.


South African Justin Walters held the first position in the second day of the UK Championship, which takes place in Sutton Coldfield (England), with a route of 71 strokes, seven more than on Thursday, for a total of 135 (9 under par), while Jorge Campillo was the only Spaniard to overcome the cut, with a score of 142 hits, with 73 this Friday.

In spite of his two 'bogeys', on holes 2 and 6, to which he countered three 'birdies', in the third, the thirteenth and the fifteenth, Walters withstood the pressure of his pursuers and still leads in one stroke the second classified, the French Benjamin Hebert, with 136, and in two the third, the English Paul Waring (137) .

Indeed, the latter was the best of the second day of the tournament with a card of 67 impacts on the 18-hole course, five under par for the course, thanks to five birdies, and equaled by New Zealander Ryan Fox, who made the same and that appears among the quartet that shares the fourth position, along with the English Marcus Armitage and Maththew Jordan and the Austrian Bernd Wiesberger.

Among the Spanish, only Jorge Campillo made it through the cut. At 69 shots on Thursday he added 73 this Friday for his current 2 under par; that is to say, seven strokes still from first place, although within those classified for the remaining appointments of the competition, from which three other compatriots are leaving. Neither Alejandro Cañizares, with 146 (2 over par); nor Sebastián García Rodríguez, with the same result; neither Pablo Larrazábal, with 149 (5 over par), passed the cut of the second day.
