DOHA, Qatar — Paul Lawrie recovered from a penalty for dropping his ball on a marker to shoot a 5-under 67 Saturday and take a one-shot lead over Nicolas Colsaerts after the second round of the Qatar Masters.
Lawrie took advantage of calmer conditions at Doha Golf Course to make six birdies for an 8-under total of 136. The tournament has been disrupted by wind and shortened to 54 holes.
Lawrie birdied the 16th to move into a tie with Colsaerts and then added another on 18 to take the outright lead. Playing in front of Lawrie, Colsaerts also birdied the 18th after a bunker shot that rolled within a foot of the pin to briefly take the lead.
Peter Hanson of Sweden (69) and Ricardo Gonzalez of Argentina (67) are two shots back.
