Pablo Larrazabal shot a four-under 66 on Friday to join fellow Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez in the lead of the KLM Open after the second round.

First-round leader Jimenez shot a bogey-free 67 to stay in the joint lead of a tournament he won in 1994. Both players had nine-under totals of 131.

The 49-year-old Spanish veteran is chasing his 20th European Tour title.

Larrazabal briefly held the outright lead before he bogeyed the 16th.

Three-time champion Simon Dyson of England matched the course record at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club with a 63 to join fellow Englishman Oliver Fisher and Julien Quesne of France a shot behind the leaders.

Dyson won two of his Dutch titles on the links-like Kennemer course on the Dutch North Sea coast and the third in Hilversum.

So far, his only dropped shots of the week came on the first hole of the first round, when he double-bogeyed the par-four.

Another Spaniard, Jorge Campillo, also shot a 63, with six birdies on the front nine, to be at six-under in a tie for seventh. He looked on track for a new course record, but had a three-putt bogey on the 18th.
