Michael Leads Alfred Dunhill Championship

South African Anthony Michael continues to lead the Alfred Dunhill Championship following the second round at the Leopard Creek Country Club.

Michael posted a three-under-par round of 69 for a 36-hole total of 135, to stay clear of Englishman Robert Rock (70) and compatriots Alex Haindl -- who carded a best-of-the-day 66 -- and Dawie van der Walt (70).

However, there was dissatisfaction for British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen, who missed the cut after adding a 71 to his opening round 76.

Oosthuizen has been wearing a brace on his leg after tearing ankle ligaments while hunting three months ago, and this newest setback follows his poor showing in last weekend's Sun City Challenge, where he was the only one of the 12 competitors to finish over par.

The event is co-sanctioned by the European Tour and South African Sunshine Tour and is the opening competition in the 2011 Race to Dubai.

Meanwhile, Denmark's Iben Tinning and England's Melissa Reid share a one-stroke lead heading into the final round of the Dubai Ladies Masters.

The pair are tied on 208 (-8) after Reid carded a third round 68 and Tinning went around the Majlis course at Emirates Golf Club in 69.
