Fisher lands catch of the day

Trevor Fisher Jnr. shot a second round 62 to grab a share of the lead at the halfway stage of the Joburg Open.

Fisher Jnr - the world No 266 - shares the lead alongside fellow South African Richard Sterne on 15-under-par.

Both players are responsible for the lowest first 36-hole score in the history of the Joburg Open, and lead by three over George Coetzee after his 64 on the East Course.

Charl Schwartzel (65) is five off the pace, tied for fourth with Keith Horne (66) and Chilean Felipe Aguilar (66), the first non-South African on the leaderboard.

The leading Europeans are Englishman Tommy Fleetwood and Jose Manuel Lara of Spain who are tied-for-seventh, six strokes off the pace, along with American Peter Uihlein and South African Jaco van Zyl.

Fleetwood posted a second round 66, one stroke more than Lara.

Defending champion Branden Grace missed the cut by three shots following rounds of 72 and 70.
