IRELAND’S PAUL DUNNE slipped down the leaderboard on day two at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.

Dunne marked himself out as a strong contender with a six-under par 66 on Thursday.

But four bogeys on Friday proved to be costly as he carded a 73 to drop to -5 as he faces into the weekend.

It leaves him five shots off the pace set by Charl Schwartzel, sitting atop of leaderboard stacked with home contenders on -10.

George Coetzee is a shot back on -9 while Branden Grace and Hugo Jean are among a group of four challengers tied on -8.
