Miguel Tabuena shot a three-under-par 70 to make the cut in the International Series Morocco at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam Friday.
Tabuena made six birdies against three bogeys to finish 36 holes on even-par 146, nine shots behind Canadian leader Richard Lee.
He missed four greens, saving par twice, but three-putted 7 for bogey.
Lee fired a classy eight-under-par 65 to take the halfway lead.
The famous venue’s Red Course once again provided a stern test, but Lee impressively rose to the challenge making an eagle and six birdies to move to nine under par for the US$1.5 million event. He was one of only five players to break 70.
Thailand’s Nitithorn Thippong returned a 72 and is in second place two back, while Australian Scott Hend and Spaniard David Puig are a stroke further behind after carding 69 and 70 respectively.
