GOLF: Rock in a Hard Place to His Liking


Byline: Harry Jack

Welshman Mouland shares second place among a 70-strong field with Simon Khan, from Essex, who eagled the par-five 18th, and Belgian Arnaud Langenaeken.

Pampling, who started the day one shot adrift of Senior, could not keep up with his rival's hot pace, although he would have been four behind the leader but for a bogey at the last. …
