MALMO, Sweden (AP) Amateur golfer Marcus Kinhult of Sweden held on to a share of the lead of the Nordea Masters after a 4-under 68 in the second round Friday.

The duo was two shots clear of countryman Sebastian Soderberg (70) and Germany's Maximilian Kiefer, who bogeyed the final two holes to settle for a 69.

Mark Foster of England had a hole-in-one on the fourth hole but was tied for 80th after a 71.
