Storm in front at KLM Open

Graeme Storm opened up a three stroke lead in the KLM Open after keeping his card bogey free for a second day in succession.
The Englishman followed his stunning opening round of 63 with a flawless 66 to reach 11 under at Hilversumsche GC.
That put him three strokes clear of Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño (65) Scott Jamieson (64) and Ryder Cup star Peter Hanson (66), who all eagled the par five 12th hole.
Storm, who was 41st in last week’s Omega European Masters and is 114th on The Race to Dubai, recorded birdies at the third, 11th, 15th and 18th.
“It makes a change to have all red on my card,” he said. “Hopefully I used all the bogeys up last week in Crans and long may it continue.
“I wasn’t expecting to shoot four under. I just managed to go round and keep the bogeys off the card as I did yesterday and made a few birdies.
“It’s all about momentum and for two days it has gone my way.”
Aside from Hanson in joint second place, Europe’s two other Ryder Cup players remain in contention.
Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts carded a flawless 65 to move to five under par, six shots off the lead, while former World Number One Martin Kaymer, carded a 71 today to sit a further shot back on four under par, the same score as defending champion Simon Dyson, who signed for a round of 66.
The leading Australasian is Marcus Fraser who added a round of 68 to be in 21st position although eight from the leader while Richard Green is one shot further back in 32nd position
