Joost Luiten tied for Volvo lead
DURBAN, South Africa -- Joost Luiten of the Netherlands holed out for an albatross on the par-5 10th hole Friday, helping him shoot a 5-under 67 and share the lead at the Volvo Golf Champions with Louis Oosthuizen and Tommy Fleetwood after the second round.
Luiten holed his 7-iron from 248 yards at the Durban Country Club for one of the rarest scores in golf, on his way to a 7-under 137 total. There was only one albatross -- or double eagle -- on the European Tour all of last season.
Defending champion Oosthuizen made four birdies and a bogey in his 69, while Fleetwood had six birdies and a bogey in a 67.
Victor Dubuisson was alone in fourth at 6 under halfway through the $4 million event.
