Ireland's Paul Dunne posted a second round total of one-under at the UBS Hong Kong Open earlier today.

He sits on three-under par as he heads into the weekend. Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello leads the way on eleven-under. 

The Spaniard carded six birdies and on bogey to post a five-under round of 65 to add to the 64 he scored yesterday.

Dunne sunk three birdies and two bogies to sign for a round of 69 today to go with his 68 yesterday. 

He sits tied on three-under tied with 10 other players including Spain's Miguel Angel-Jimenez.

Cabrero-Bello leads the field by three shots with Australia's Sam Brazel shooting eight-under for his opening two rounds.

Elsewhere, Masters Champion Danny Willett sits on six-under for the tournament alongside Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Walters and Paul Peterson.  

Ian Poulter and Patrick Reed just avoided the cut as they sit on even-par after their first two rounds. 

Speaking to the BBC afterwards, Willett said: "It's nice to be in this position after the last few months. I came out here probably as fresh as I've been for a month and a half."
