In a disappointing finish for the country at the Shot Clock Masters, the three Indians in the fray -- Ajeetesh Sandhu (77-70), Jeev Milkha Singh (82-82) and Shiv Kapur (79, withdrawn) -- have missed the halfway cut.
The official European Tour shot time allowances will be in force: a 50 second allowance for a first to play approach shot (including a par three tee shot), chip or putt and a 40-second allowance for a tee shot on a par four or par five, or second or third to play approach shot, chip or putt.
However, each player can call for a time-extension up to twice in any one round, allowing a further 40 seconds over and above the above allowances to play the shot in question.
Mikko Korhonen produced a big finish to sign for a flawless 67 and take a one-shot lead into the weekend.
The Finn earned his stripes on the European Tour the hard way, making 12 trips to the Qualifying School - winning the Final Stage in 2014 and keeping his card in every season since. He is still searching for a first European Tour win.
Local hero Matthias Schwab, 2016 champion Wu Ashun, veteran Spaniard Miguel ngel Jimnez and Dane Jeppe Pape Huldahl were then two shots off the lead.
