Poor visibility has forced the reduction of this week's Porsche European Open to a 54 hole/three rounds tournament at the Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Germany.

Alexander Levy stormed into a six stroke lead on Friday night, while Ireland's Paul Dunne looks on course for a fourth top 20 finish in six outings.

Speaking after his second round, Dunne said he was happy with his game despite the disruptions to play.  

"I mean I'm pretty pleased to be honest, we didn't get a practice round so we just walked the course," he told Nick Dye.

"When I walked it I thought it was quite a demanding course off the tee.  It's soft and the fairways are playing wider, but once you drive it well you get a lot of chances with the greens being good. 

"I'm happy with eight under, the scoring is lower than I expected. Obviously everyone is playing well this week, so I don't know where eight under will leave me. Maybe somewhere between 15th and 20th by the time everyone is finished.

"I've had two good days work, I've played well and when I've struggled I've recovered quite well. I've had one double and no other bogeys so I just need to get some more putts to go in. 

"For the position I'm in I need to finish as high as I can. The key for me tomorrow is if I hit my driver well, I'll give myself a lot of chances. If I do that I'll shoot a good score."

With the fog causing suspensions in play, finding any sort of momentum has been difficult.

"I just got through it. It was the same for everybody. Everyone has been up at 6am every morning and staying until 7am. It's not like I'm in a different position to anyone else. It is what it is, you just don't know when the fog is going to clear. You just have a couple of coffees and sit there and wait."
