A back-nine eagle in China saw Paul Dunne grab a share of third at the end of his second round in the Shenzhen International in China this afternoon.

Dunne carded a three-under par round of 69 to add to yesterday's 68, although he remains six strokes behind leader Soo-Min Lee. Dunne is tied for third with Brandon Stone while Joost Luiten occupies the second spot on the leaderboard, three strokes back from Lee.

The South Korean has played flawless golf so far and is yet to card a bogey after rounds of 66 and 65 saw him pull clear of the field.

Dunne has had a decent start to the 2016 season, earning over €55,000 in his first six events, including a top 10 at the Joburg Open.

He has also made five cuts out of seven events on tour this year.
