Brown still in the running in Portugal, Paddison out

6:18 pm on 12 June 2010

The New Zealand golfer Mark Brown is tied for 36th at the halfway stage of the European Tour's Portuguese Open.

Brown followed up his one under par 71 with a two-under 70 second round to be nine shots behind the leader, Spain's Carlos del Moral and Denmark's Thomas Bjorn, who both shot 65s.

A second straight par round of 72 wasn't enough for another New Zealander, Gareth Paddison - he's missed the cut.
