Golf: Christian soldiers on after collapse.
Ries, who opened with a 64 on Wednesday, had a 74 yesterday after dropping five strokes in the last five holes but still has a five-stroke cushion over Prestonfield's Stephen Buckley.
Ries won't be looking to countryman Ernie Els's Open performance for inspiration over Cawder, near Glasgow. Ries said: "Although it would have been good for South Africa if Ernie had won the Open, I didn't mind too much because I had money on Tiger Woods to win!''
Buckley made amends for his disappointing opening 75 with a second-round 68 and a three-over-par total of 143.
138 - C Ries (South Africa) 64, 74.
143 - S Buckley (Prestonfield) 75, 68.
144 - B Hume (Haggs Castle) 77, 67; C Girvan (Lanark) 73, 71; M Risbridger (Greenock) 73, 71.
