Thomas Bjorn had bogeys to bookend an otherwise stellar second-round 68 that left him one clear of Kevin Streelman at the ISPS HANDA World Cup.
Bjorn had five birdies between his opening and closing bogeys and had a two-shot advantage before dropping a shot late.
"I played really solid today," Bjorn said. "I went out and three-putted the first and it shook me up a little bit but I got it back and just stuck to the gameplan."
After bogeying two of his last three on Thursday, Streelman opened Round 2 with four consecutive birdies to reach 9 under temporarily. He gave away three shots on Nos. 8-9 but got one back on the back nine to reach the clubhouse at 7 under. That was the day's best number until Bjorn signed his card.
Three more shots off the pace at 4 under are Australia's Jason Day and Portugal's Ricardo Santos. Stuart Manley, Hideto Tanihara, Martin Laird and Matt Kuchar finished the round another shot back at 3 under.
In the team competition, Streelman and Kuchar are at 10 under and three clear of Denmark's Bjorn and Thorbjorn Olesen. Just five teams are in red numbers after 36 holes and no others are better than 3 under.
