Padraig Harrington posted a two-under par second round at the Turkish Airlines Open earlier today to leave him on one-under for the tournament.

Coming off the back of his victory in Portugal in his last outing, Harrington has elected to play the final three events on the European tour as he chases down the ranking points required to allow him entry into next year's US Masters. 

The Dubliner started in fine form posting four birdies in a row before three bogies (and another birdie on 15) left him on one-under for his two rounds.

Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen holds the clubhouse lead by six shots after a posting an impressive nine-under earlier today to add to his first round total of six-under. 

The Dane shot eight birdies and an eagle with his only blemish coming with a bogey on the par 4 eleventh.

The chasing pack is led by Spain's Adrian Otaegui and Thailand's Thongchee Jaidai who sit on nine-under. Elsewhere in the Race to Dubai standings, England's Danny Willet posted a three-over second round to leave him on one over for the tournament. He is chasing down Henrik Stenson who decided not to play this event.
