CENTURION, South Africa -- Ross Fisher of England stormed home with an eagle-birdie-birdie-par finish to grab a one-shot lead in the Tshwane Open after the second round on Friday.

Fisher made five birdies and eagled the par-5 15th hole with a curling 40-footer at Copperleaf for a 7-under 65. He's 13 under for the tournament, one stroke ahead of Morten Orum Madsen of Denmark, the South African Open winner who carded seven birdies in his own mistake-free 65.

Simon Dyson of England, the overnight leader in the clubhouse after the first round was suspended by a thunderstorm, shot 68 to lie in a tie for third at 11 under with Carlos del Moral of Spain (65).

Another stroke behind them at 10 under were the leading South Africans -- Jake Roos (65), Darren Fichardt (68) and Trevor Fisher Jr. (69) -- and Michael Hoey of Northern Ireland, who reeled off a personal-best seven straight birdies from the 10th hole in a 65.
