Mikko Korhonen holds a slender lead heading into the third round of the Shot Clock Masters.

The Fin shot a round of 67 to head into the clubhouse on nine under par through the opening two rounds, leaving him a shot clear of Steve Webster and Justin Walters -- both on eight under.

Manuel Angel Jimenez is a shot further behind on seven under par. He had been leading on ten under, but dropped three shots in his last three holes to squander his advantage. He joins Matthias Schwab, Ashun Wu and Jeppe Huldahl in the chasing pack tied in third.

The tournament in Austria is running for the first time with each of the 120 players involved timed on their shots. If they are too slow they are hit with a one shot penalty.

However, there have been no penalties handed out across the opening two rounds, with players quick to adapt to the new format.
