PULHEIM, Germany – Joel Sjoholm twice chipped in for eagle in shooting a 6-under 66 Friday to lead by two strokes at the halfway mark of the BMW International Open.
The Chilean-born Swede has already caught the eye with his knickerbockers and colorful attire, and his eagles at No. 7 and No. 12 were even more attention-grabbing.
“This is the first time as a pro I've been in the lead, and I'm just enjoying it so much,” said Sjoholm, who has two top-10
finishes in 2012 after joining the European Tour last year. “It's a great feeling to be leading and in a great tournament. I've always enjoyed playing in Germany.”
