Jonathan Caldwell found a birdie at his final hole to make the cut on the number at the halfway stage of the ISPS Handa UK Championship at the Belfry.

The Clandeboye professional had reached the final hole on Friday three over for his round after trading just one birdie with four bogeys on an uninspiring afternoon in Sutton.

That was until Caldwell summoned the skill to birdie his 36th hole of the championship, a gain that saw him home in 74 and at one-over par for the tournament, that was good enough to book his place in the weekend on the number, albeit ten shots off the leading pace.

Paul Dunne’s dismal run of form continued in posting a second round 77 for a seven-over par tournament total as he missed the cut as he continues his comeback from a wrist injury sustained last year.

History-maker Brendan Lawlor posted a 10-over par 82 to finish at the foot of the board, but the Carton House man can hold his head high regardless after doing more for disability golf this week than many have managed in a lifetime.

South African Justin Walters leads the tournament at nine-under par.
