The Northern Irishman carded an eight-under 64, 1 stroke behind the Frenchman who took at the smallest opening around in the tournament. Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, whos next in the Race to Dubai standings, is connected to compatriot Tom Lewis in fourth five below. Fleetwood struck on a eagle. The 28-year-old explained his unlikely eagle two as theperfect start to the afternoon. I hit a wonderful drive and I did not anticipate the two to get to the pin but it had been the perfect start, Fleetwood told Sky Sports. I struck so many great putts out there today. I got on a really nice series where I had been hitting some nice ones and I couldnt have asked for much more. Fleetwood, that jumped into second with victory in the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa will soon be crowned as the golfer if leader Bernd Wiesberger ends outside the top two. The Austrian is currently tied in 14th about two under after carding a 70. Meanwhile, McIlroy announced his nickname on the 18th as hisbest shot of this year. Play will resume at 08:40 GMT on Friday.
