US PGA champ one shot off the pace in Austria

11:00 am on 18 September 2010

The European Ryder Cup golfer, Graeme McDowell, continued his fine form at the Austrian Open with a sparkling 68 to sit one shot off the lead after the second round.

The Briton, returning to action for the first time since last month's U.S. PGA Championship, conjured up five birdies to move to seven-under 137, three shots clear of Ryder Cup team mate Miguel Angel Jimenez, who also went round in 68.

Britain's John Parry hit a five-under par 67, carding five birdies without dropping a shot, to hold the midway lead.
