Wrag Barn’s Josh Loughrey leads the field by two shots going into round three of the Tunisian Open.

Having shot a six under par 67 on day one, Loughrey maintained his two stroke advantage on the field with a second round score of 69.

The 24-year-old was delighted to top the leaderboard and said a fast start to his second round was key.

“It was not as windy as Thursday because I started early. I got a really good start again. I played really well, I feel really confident with my swing.

“I only bogeyed the last hole, I birdied the eighth again. Three under, I am happy with that.”

Loughrey predicts a score of 15 under par will be required to clinch the title, adding: “I don’t think that it changed a lot to play a four day tournament compared to a three day one but it is true that we usually don’t have a moving day.

“I like a four day tournament because it is not so much of a race. I think the winning score will be 15 under, I said that at the beginning of the week. I will keep going as low as possible.”
