Former champion Mikael Lundberg and Jarmo Sandelin each shot an eight-under 64 to share a one-stroke lead on Friday after the second round of the Russian Open, as John Daly missed the cut for the second straight week.
Lundberg and Sandelin are at 13-under 131 after both Swedes started the day two shots behind four first-round leaders in equal sixth among a group of 10.
Robert Rock of England (64) is third.
Daly, who won the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 Open, had a 73 to miss the cut by one stroke after being tied for 76th place at 143.
The American also missed the cut at The Open and at the BMW International Open last month.
Daly had two birdies and a bogey on the front nine, but opened with a double bogey on the back. He made a birdie on the next hole, but a bogey on the par-three 16th left him out of contention.
Lundberg, who won the 2005 Russian Open on the fourth extra hole in a sudden-death playoff for his first European title, opened with a birdie and an eagle that was immediately followed by two bogeys.
He then made two birdies before the turn and five more on the back nine.
Sandelin, a five-time winner on tour, started on the back nine and had five birdies. He dropped his first hole after the turn, but then picked up a birdie immediately and closed the round with three consecutive birdies.
The first-round leaders had a miserable day. Joakim Backstrom of Sweden, David Carter of England and Roope Kakko of Finland all shot a 73 to be tied for 24th at 138. Fredrik Henge of Sweden (77) is a further four strokes back.
Former top-ranked Russian tennis player Yevgeny Kafelnikov and NHL forward Alex Kovalev, who received wild cards from the organizers, were last at 25-over and 40-over, respectively.
Over two rounds, Kafelnikov made par at 17 holes and had his first birdie, a big improvement since only making par at four holes in his golf debut in 2005.

Chez Reavie played 33 holes in 13-under and took a two-stroke lead on Friday at the Canadian Open, which had yet to complete its second round because of rain delays from the opening day.
After starting with three straight pars before his round was suspended on Thursday, Reavie finished his first round with a six-under 65 and had a 64 in the second to sit two shots ahead of Eric Axley.
At 13-under 129 the 26-year-old US tour rookie matched the tournament record for the first 36 holes set by Scott Dunlap in 1996 when Glen Abbey played to a par of 72. The 129 total also matches the best on the PGA Tour this year.
Axley, one of 63 players unable to finish the round, was 11-under with a hole left when play was suspended because of darkness.
Nicholas Thompson was nine-under with a hole remaining. Billy Mayfair (68-66) and Steve Marino (67-67) were in the clubhouse at eight-under, and Briny Baird and Brian Davis also were five strokes back.
Baird had five holes to go and Davis had one left.
Mike Weir, part of a seven-man tie for the first-round lead after a bogey-free 65 on Thursday morning, was even par in the second round with two holes to play, leaving him seven strokes back at six-under.
