London: British golf ace Luke Donald has moved into contention for a third BMW PGA Championship title in four years after hitting a second-round 67 on Saturday.

The former world number one, who was joined on six under by Spain`s Rafael Cabrera-Bello, fired six birdies and an eagle to end the day at Wentworth four shots behind joint leaders Thomas Bjorn and Shane Lowry.

According to the BBC, the 2011 and 2012 champion, who had a run of five threes in succession from the eighth which culminated in an eagle on the 12th, admitted he was fortunate to get the best of the weather, after early rain and wind gave way to bright skies in the afternoon in Surrey.

The report mentioned that Swedish Henrik Stenson and Northern Ireland`s Rory McIlroy are in a group of four players a further shot behind on five under at the halfway point, the report added.
