Coverage continues of the second round at the International Open from the Belfry course in the West Midlands, which is also scheduled to be the venue for next year's Ryder Cup matches.
Sweden's Per-Ulrick Johansson led at the end of the second day last year - when the tournament was held at the Oxfordshire Golf Club in Thame - following a seven-under-par effort of 65. Ultimately, though, he had to give way to Scotland's Colin Montgomerie , who moved steadily through the field to triumph by a margin of three strokes with a total of 15-under.
Commentary is provided by the team of Peter Alliss , Alex Hay , Ken Brown , Julian Tutt ,
Mike Hughesdon , Beverly Lewis and Dougie Donnelly. Presented by Steve Rider. (S) (W) Including at 3.20 News
