Paul Dunne is right in contention after his second round at the Hassan II Trophy in Morocco.

The Greystones golfer carded a second round 69 to leave himself on 4-under heading into the weekend's action.

The 24 year old is currently in a tie for third, two shots behind clubhouse leader Gregory Havret of France who has carded consecutive 70s. 

Denmark's Lucas Bjerregaard is second on 5-under after carding a 71 on Day 2.

Dunne carded a birdie on the front nine. But his back nine was particularly impressive, starting with an eagle on the 10th.

He then followed that up with birdies on the 11th, 12th and 15th holes before bogeys on the 16th and 17th stalled his progress somewhat.

The European Tour's official Twitter account also made reference to his attire: 

 

Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey is 3-over after seven holes which leaves him just outside the projected cut mark.
