DAVID Howell had another solid round at the Tshwane Open today.

The Broome Manor pro carded another three-under-par 69 for the second round in South Africa to take him to six-under for the tournament after day one saw him go around without dropping a shot.

Howell got off to a fine start in Centurion, as he scored a birdie two on the third hole, but a bogey six at six blotted his copybook slightly, before birding the seventh, 15th and 16th.
