CRANS-SUR-SIERRE, Switzerland – Stephen Gallacher shot a 6-under 65 on Friday to share a one-shot lead with Thomas Bjorn after the second round of the European Masters.
Bjorn, the 2011 champion from Denmark, shot a second straight 66 to sit level with Gallacher at 10-under 132 on a low-scoring day in the Swiss Alps sunshine.
Miguel Angel Jiminez of Spain joined a five-way tie for third on 9 under, shooting a 68 that included five birdies in a six-hole homeward stretch.
Danny Willett was also in that group after shooting the day's best round of 64 to put him alongside fellow Englishmen Tommy Fleetwood and Richard Finch, plus Victor Dubuisson of France.
Overnight leader Anirban Lahiri of India and 23-year-old American Brooks Koepka were among five players on 8 under.– Sapa-AP
