Bernd Wiesberger from Austria scored a track record 61 in The Renaissance Club to take a lead on halfway through the Scottish Open.

The 33-year-old is 14 under going to the third round of Saturday, with Lee Slattery from England and Erik van Rooyen from South Africa on the same total.

Wiesberger placed 10 birdies and dropped only one shot in a beautiful round.

"I haven't shot under 10 during a pro event, so that was a bonus," he said.

"It just went well with the power and it went very well."

Emerging star Van Rooyen, meanwhile, conjured up eight birdies and dropped only one shot to roar.

The 29- A year old experienced a top 20 finish last year in his first Open Championships in Carnoustie and enjoys playing in Scotland.

"I love it. Nks, it's the people, it's the weather," said Van Rooyen.

"Days like these remind me a bit of Cape Town, where my wife and I have lived for a few years – the winter in Cape Town. The weather is great when it is and it gives a positive atmosphere and I feed that. "

While Wiesberger and Van Rooyen already qualified for the Open at Royal Portrush next week, Slattery has not and is now well placed for one of the three outstanding places for the top 10 to claim players.

His last triumph of the European Tour came in 2015 and the player from Southport says he is living up to his Twitter biography, which & # 39; tacitly practice & # 39; let your results make the noise. "

" It has always been a bit like that, "Slattery said." This year I installed a gym in my house and a putting green indoors, so I just worked very hard on those aspects.

"My wife has been to the gym a lot and she loves it too. We have just become a fit family."

Another highlight of the second round was a hole-in-one for Welshman Bradley Dredge on the par three 17th, which earned him a car.

Two shots are hidden behind the leaders are 2016 Open champion Henrik Stenson and Italian Nino Bertasio on 12 under.

Others safe until the weekend are Ian Poulter (-10) and Rory McIlroy (-8), but the four-cushion under the Scottish Open winner Rickie Fowler were not good enough to make the cut.

The leading Scot among the 15 home players are Kinross & Calum Hill, who was via a 36-hole qualifier in nearby Longniddry last week.

He is 10 younger, while other home favorites Scott Jamieson (-8), Grant Forrest (-7), Richie Ramsay (-7) and David Drysdale (-5) are also making progress.
