Graeme McDowell sits four shots off the lead at the UBS Hong Kong Open following a second round of one-under-par.

McDowell carded 69 on Friday to lie in the slipstreams of leader Justin Rose.

The Portrush star posted five birdies and four bogeys in his round and is tied for 10th position on five under.

Rose has a one-shot lead over Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark, with Ian Poulter and Wei-chih Lu a further shot back.

Kevin Phelan, Padraig Harrington and Peter Lawrie have all missed the cut.
