Nicolas Colsaerts holds the halfway lead at the European Tour's BMW Masters. The Belgian bomber followed up an opening round 66 with a 64 to take a one shot advantage into the weekend. First round leader Alexander Levy is one shot back at 13 under. The Frenchman would jump to second in the Race to Dubai if he were to win at Lake Malaren
The PGA tour are also in Asia for the CIMB classic. Billy Hurley III posted back-to-back 67’s to hold a two stroke lead in Kuala Lumpur. Kevin Streelman heads the chasing pack at eight under with Lee Westwood in a group one shot back at minus seven. The Englishman made the 15th hole in one of his career at the 226 yard 11th.
Rolex Rankings number one Inbee Park carded nine birdies and an eagle on the way to a second round 62 at the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship. Shanshan Feng is her closest challenger, three strokes back at 15 under.
And finally, Fred Couples has thrown his hat into the ring for the US Ryder Cup captaincy at Hazeltine in 2016. Couples has urged the PGA of America not to panic and that he would love to captain America. The five time Ryder Cupper would be a popular choice with the likes of Keegan Bradley already backing his Presidents Cup captain.
