Consistent Slattery Takes M2M Lead

England’s Lee Slattery fired his second straight 67 to open up a 2-stroke lead at the M2M Russian Open Saturday.

Slattery might have run away with the lead for good had he not double-bogeyed No. 11, but was pretty perfect otherwise, with six birdies, four of those on the back nine.

His lead is two over Argentina’s Estanislao¬† Goya and Scotland’s Craig Lee, who are both 11-under through 54 holes.

The biggest mover on the day was by defending champion David Horsey, who jumped up from 11th to fourth with a 66 to climb within three strokes of the lead.

Day Two leader Bradley Dredge sunk to a tie for fifth at 9-under after struggling to a 1-over 72 on Saturday.

Dredge started off strong, with two birdies in his first three holes, but gave both strokes back with bogeys on 9 and 12. he got back to 1-under par with a birdie on 13, but struggled down the stretch with two more bogeys on 14 and 17 to wind up over par.

Dredge was 2-over on the back nine Saturday after going a combined 7-under there on Thursday and Friday.
