Connor Syme among three-way tie for the lead at halfway stage of Kenya Open

Connor Syme eagled the last in round two of the Magical Kenya Open to take a share of the lead heading into the weekend in Nairobi.

The 28-year-old Scot is looking for a first win on the DP World Tour and he put his second on the par-five 18th to five feet to sign for a 68 and join Dutchman Darius van Driel and Finn Tapio Pulkkanen at seven under.

"Pretty pleased," he said. "Actually didn't putt as well as I did yesterday but I felt like I played a little bit better today.

"It was nice to get a bonus eagle at the last to cap off a solid round of golf."

Pulkkanen also signed for a 68, one shot fewer than overnight leader Van Driel, with the trio one shot clear of Scot Ewen Ferguson, England's Sam Hutsby, Spaniard Manuel Elvira and Italy's Lorenzo Scalise.

English pair Joe Dean and Tom Lewis and Craig Howie of Scotland were part of an eight-man group at five under.
