Shane Lowry finished 36 holes at 9-under 133.
City of Newport, Wales (SportsNetwork.com) - Shane Lowry fired a second- round, 6-under 65 on Friday to take a 1-shot lead heading into the weekend at the Wales Open.

Lowry, who has two career wins on the European Tour, finished 36 holes at 9-under 133. Lowry's last victory came at the Portugal Masters in 2012.

"I felt like coming over that I could give it a go this week," said Lowry. "I was around 10th going into the back nine on Sunday last week, and similar the week before in Switzerland. If I can get myself in a good position come the back nine this weekend, again, hopefully I can give it a go."

First-round leader Joost Luiten, who entered the day three shots ahead of Lowry, shot a 2-under 69 at The Celtic Manor Resort and he is one shot back at 8-under 134 along with Nicolas Colsaerts (68).  Full Story
