EAST LONDON, South Africa (AP) Matt Ford opened a one-shot lead at the Africa Open on Friday after a second-round 66 took him to 11 under par.

Ford didn't repeat his bogey-free first round, but still went one better than his opening 67 after making six birdies and holing out for an eagle two on the par-4 No. 12. He made two bogeys for 6 under on the day at East London Golf Club.

Co-leader overnight, the Englishman is ahead on his own from Spaniard Eduardo de la Riva. Both are seeking to end a seven-year winning run by South African golfers at the European Tour event.

Jaco van Zyl, Gregory Havret and Erik van Rooyen are three shots off the lead in a tie for third on 8 under.
