Molinari leads at Wentworth

WENTWORTH, England - Italy's Francesco Molinari leads the way after two rounds of the European PGA Championship at Wentworth but several of his European Ryder Cup team mates missed the cut.

Molinari was six under par after a second-round 68, making four birdies in his last eight holes by lunchtime.

A cluster of players finished a shot back from Molinari including South Africa's George Coetzee, Marc Warren of Scotland, Mark Foster from England and Spain's Alejandro Canizares. The leader's brother Edoardo was two under.

A grandstand finish from English youngster Eddie Pepperell, who birdied the last four holes, got him to four under alongside another Italian, Matteo Manassero. Brett Rumford and Andrew Dodt continued to lead the Australians but they were eight off the pace on two over par after both shooting 75 on Friday.

The deteriorating weather meant few players were likely to challenge Molinari's mark at the top in the afternoon and Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter and defending champion Luke Donald all failed.
