Wiesberger leading the way in Icheon

golf: Bernd Wiesberger holds a one-shot lead after shooting a seven-under-par 65 to lead at the halfway stage of the Ballantine’s Championship in Icheon, South Korea.

The Austrian, who opened his tournament with a respectable level par 72 on a blustery first day, hit seven birdies to lead by one from Australian Marcus Fraser.

Fraser, who won this title on Jeju Island in 2010, shot a 67 that left him one ahead of Swede Oskar Floren.

Fraser started on the back nine and turned in 32, but he bogeyed both par threes on the front nine.

Miguel Angel Jiménez, England’s Anthony Wall and Chile’s Felipe Aguilar share fourth on four under, with none of the afternoon starters able to break into the top six in much windier conditions.

English pair Graeme Storm and Oliver Fisher are among a four-way tie for seventh with Paul Casey, David Howell and Ian Poulter one of eight tied for 11th.
