Tommy Fleetwood took control of the Rush as a record-equalling Speed was Establish by Mike Lorenzo-Vera at the halfway stage of the DP World Tour Championship.

Lorenzo-Vera added a 69 to his opening 63 to open up a three-shot lead over Fleetwood and Jon Rahm on 12 under, fitting the finest 36-hole score at the case, however, Rory McIlroy endured a tough afternoon around the Earth Course and slipped seven strokes behind the leader after an error-strewn 74.
Fleetwood being at a tie-for second shot him high of the projected closing Race to Dubai standings ahead of long-time leader Bernd Wiesberger, who kept a bogey off his card made only 1 birdie and 17 pars at a 71 he described ashorizontal.
But the big names are all looking upwards at Lorenzo-Vera, that continued to create some excellent golf despite having a lung disease as he powered into a clear lead to pursuit of the maiden European Tour success, even though he did open the door for the chasing pack with a couple of mistakes that were late.
The charismatic Frenchman showed no signs of being defeated at partnering McIlroy in the last pairing of the day as he birdied the opening two holes, and he responded to a bogey at the fifth having back-to-back birdies in eight and seven to turn in 33 to the second day running.
Even the 34-year-old then cruised to 14 under when he birdied 13 and chipped into a second at 14, but he began to falter in the setting sun as he bogeyed the 15th after which three-putted to final green from 25 ft – leaving his tentative six-foot par putt brief as his five-stroke guide was whittled down to three.
Fleetwood needs a minimum of a top-two end to get some chance of pipping Wiesberger to the Race into Dubai crown, and also the 2017 European No 1 kept his hopes alive because he mixed seven birdies with three bogeys in a 68 which raised him six shots before this Austrian.
Before dropping shots at the third and fourth, A weeks Nedbank Challenge winner birdied the first, however he got back on track before following a streak of pars with more gains in the 13th and 14th.
Fleetwood lipped out from six feet for par at the second, but he got the shot back at the final to close on two under combined with Ryder Cup team-mate Rahm, who was one around for the day till he birdied 14 and 16 before capping a fighting 69 with a brilliant eagle at the past.
Tom Lewis is two shots further back heading into the weekend, while McIlroy was compelled to reflect to a string of mistakes, particularly in the par-threes, as he shut six beneath which might have been worse had not scrambled a par at the final after discovering water off the teeshirt.
The type of his 64 was evident as he parred the first five holes and rinsed his tee-shot to the brief sixth, a mistake that led to some double-bogey five.
McIlroy hit with his first birdie of the round in the second, but he needed to dig deep into scramble a par at the ninth before he leaked another shot at the 10th and fluffed a chip after yanking his tee-shot to the left rough in the short 13th, where he failed to limit the damage to some bogey-four.
The world No two came within a whisker of chipping in for eagle at the next as he clawed one shot back, however, his hopes of matching his magnificent first-round eagle in the 18th vanished when he halted his driveway into the creek on the proper and also, after drilling a towering fairway-wood onto the front of this greenhe safely two-putted from 40 ft to stay in six under.
Justin Rose is eight away from the lead following a mixed-bag of a 70 which featured only six pars, while pars werent a problem for Wiesberger because he carded 17 of these, his solitary birdie coming at the 11th as he shut on three under par and in a tie for 13th location.
