Fahrbring fights fever to lead in Italy

Jens Fahrbring overcame illness to fire a stunning 64 and take a share of the lead after the second round of the 72° OPEN D’ITALIA presented by DAMIANI.

The Swede won the D+D REAL Czech Challenge in May on the Challenge Tour but had missed the cut in all four of his European Tour events so far this year.

He looked very much like he belonged on Friday, though, as he picked up shots on the 11th and 12th before giving one back on the 13th but further gains on the 14th, 16th and 17th saw him turn in 32. More birdies followed on the first, second and sixth, and a four on the ninth moved him into a share of the lead with Lucas Bjerregaard.

The duo are 13 under par, two shots clear of Pedro Oriol, Romain Wattel, Fabrizio Zanotti and overnight leader Nicolas Colsaerts, but Fahrbring admits he has been battling a cold as well as the course.
