Result: Ben Martin leads Zurich Classic by three shots at halfway stage

Ben Martin continues his dominance at TPC Louisiana to lead the Zurich Classic by three shots after two rounds.

Ben Martin enjoyed another successful day at TPC Louisiana to earn a three-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Zurich Classic.

The American, who broke the course record to shoot 10-under-par on day one, impressed the crowd once again in Avondale to post a second-round score of 67.

Martin is closing in on a record finish at the course, with the previous best of 20-under-par appearing to be a realistic possibility for the in-form 26-year-old.

For the second day in a row, Andrew Svoboda is Martin's closest challenger as he kept the pressure on with a round of 68 to finish three shots back.

Noh Seung-Yul and Robert Streb are in a tie for third on 11-under, while Ryder Cup Peter Hanson is one shot further back heading into the weekend.
