Tinning continues to lead following from yesterday’s first round ahead of former Ryder Cup player Phillip Price, Italy’s Emanuele Canonica and McGinley who finished on one under par. Price and England’s Phillip Archer were the only two players to break 70, both posting rounds of 69.
“It’s nice to have the support already I hope we can give them something to cheer about tomorrow,” McGinley said. “I didn’t give them a lot on the back nine today I kind of lost a bit of momentum around the turn made some mistakes, it was a really difficult day.”
“We had some squally showers on the front nine, I did well holed some nice putts which we need to do in these conditions kept the ball in front of me, every hole was a cross wind today there wasn’t any that was down wind everything was a massive cross wind, with the wind coming off the west.
“I kept it in front of me and holed some nice putts, on the back nine I didn’t hole any putts at all I missed a couple of short ones and that’s the difference.”
McGinley recorded five birdies on the back nine in yesterday’s round and three birdies on the front nine in today’s round and admits if he can replicate this then he will be in with a chance tomorrow.
“If I can match what I did on the back nine yesterday on the front nine today I will be in business,” he said. “I am looking forward to the battle tomorrow, I’m tired now I’m really tired I lost my concentration on the back nine, play will probably be slow again tomorrow and I need to be ready for that and I wasn’t ready for it today and it hurt me a bit so I need to be better.”
