The 35-year-old went around on eight birdies and a bogey to reach the course record in Cromvoirt, the Netherlands in the Dutch Open. 

- I played really well today, started with three straight birdies and my putter was roasting, says Broberg.

He is one stroke ahead of the Dane Marcus Helligkilde and the Belgian Thomas Detry, where all three go in the leader ball that kicks out 12.25 on Saturday when the third round is played.

Broberg has also made a vision correction and received a contact lens in the right eye.

- It allows me to see the putts well, says "Kotte".

The first prize is SEK 1.7 million.
