Matthias Schwab continued his fantastic form on the European Tour on Friday, shooting a five-under-par score of 67 to take a one-shot lead at the Turkish Airlines Open as he hunts for his maiden victory.
Justin Rose is chasing a third consecutive victory in Antalya and he will be well in the mix over the weekend, with the Englishman shooting a five-under round for himself, leaving him just two shots behind Schwab.
A four-way tie for second will be chasing Schwab over the weekend, with Danny Willett, Ross Fisher, Thomas Detry and Alex Noren all just one behind. Fisher, who hasn't won on the European Tour since 2014, shot a fantastic eight-under par round of 64 to put him in the mix.
"I wasn't really hitting them great at all, especially early on but kept it together," Schwab said. "The long game wasn't on but I managed to make a few good pars. On the back nine I found my swing a little bit and made a few good birdies coming home."
