Blake Windred one behind at European Amateur Championship

New South Wales golfer Blake Windred might not have been as brilliant in round two as in his opening round of 66 at the European Amateur Championship at the Diamond Country Club in Austria but he stands just one shot behind the leader heading into the final 36 holes.

Windred shared the lead after day one with New Zealander Daniel Hillier but while Windred stayed very much in touch with his round of 71, Hiller was 19 shots worse than his effort on the opening-day and missed the cut.

Windred, however, remained in or near the lead throughout his round before a late bogey saw him slip one behind England’s Harry Hall and into a share of second place with Jerry Ji of the Netherlands and Joseph Long of England.

Last year Windred led through 36 holes and now has the opportunity to better his eventual 7th place 12 months ago.

Perth's Josh Greer is the next best Australian in a share of 10th place.
