HEYSHAM’S  Jack Senior took charge of the Made in Denmark Challenge after a second round of one under 70 saw him leapfrog overnight leader Ruaidhri McGee at the top of the leaderboard.

Senior’s four under total is a commendable effort given the difficult nature of Royal Copenhagen Golf, which is providing the stiffest test of the Challenge Tour season so far. Only eight players managed to better the par of 71 in round two, with the eight over par cut mark the highest of the season by a considerable eight shots.

Former Lancashire County player Senior, though, was not concerned with the cut line as he carved out his one under par second round to move to four under and one clear of McGee, who carded a 72 to fall back to second place, one shot clear of Scotland’s Andrew McArthur, whose second consecutive 70 moved him into third spot.

Senior said: “It’s a really tough test of golf this week. I think nearly every shot you hit you are under the gun – there is no let up and every shot demands a lot of attention.

“Obviously I am pleased with my score and where I am in the tournament. It was a case of hitting as many fairways and greens as possible today, that is the key if you want to do anything around this golf course. You have to really commit to your lines and hit good quality shots.

“It all sounds pretty boring but over the weekend it is going to have be a case of staying in the present and trying to keep doing what I have done over the first two rounds.”
