2014 Ryder Cup winning captain Paul McGinley is now just one shot off the lead here at the Forest of Arden as American Clark Dennis dropped three shots on his second round.
European Senior Tour Order of Merit leader Dennis was the overnight leader here at the Forest of Arden at the inaugural Farmfoods European Senior Masters.
England's Phil Golding had a good day in the Warwickshire winds as only one of a handful of players to break par, he is just two shots off the lead sitting in joint third place.
With only a few remaining groups out on the Arden course it is likely that Dennis will begin the final day as leader of the field.
