David Law looking to turn Catalunya Championship into 'big week'

David Law is looking for a “big week” on the DP World Tour and quietly fancies his chances of it coming in the Catalunya Championship.

The Aberdonian sits just four shots off the lead at the halfway stage, having opened with rounds 72 and 69 on the Stadium Course at PGA Catalunya in Girona for a three-under total.

“Yeah, it was good,” said Law of a second-round effort that contained four birdies and was heading to be bogey-free before dropping a shot at the eighth - his penultimate hole.

“I played really well,” he added. “I played nicely yesterday and had a poor finish, which was disappointing so that was probably in the back of my mind with a couple to play. But I was really happy with that.”

Law has now made the cut in eight out of nine events this season, including a top-10 finish in the Ras Al Khaimah Championship.

“I think so,” he said in reply to being asked if he felt his game was in a good place. “I just feel I need that big week, which I’ve not had yet.

“This week is a good opportunity as I’m playing good enough golf that I can be up there, so here’s hoping.”

Englishman Laurie Canter carded a second-day 67 to move into the lead at a venue that is proving popular on its return to the DP World Tour schedule.

“I’ve been here twice and it’s fantastic,” said Law. “You know, we are lucky to play here and last week was good as well. It’s a good test. You need to play really good golf and they’ve set it up well.

“There’s a bit of rough and the course probably doesn’t even need the rough and it would still be tricky.”

A double-bogey 6 at his final hole left David Drysdale having to settle for a 74, which dropped him to one-over, while Grant Forrest was the only other Scot to make the cut and he needed the mark to go to two-over late in the day after a sloppy second-round 76.
