Sullivan hits 7-under 64 to lead Portugal Masters

VILAMOURA, Portugal (AP) England's Andy Sullivan carded a 7-under 64 for a second straight day to take a three-shot lead at the Portugal Masters on Friday.

Sullivan, who shared the overnight lead with Nicolas Colsaerts, hit seven birdies in a flawless second round at the Oceanico Victoria course for a 14-under total of 128.

Belgium's Thomas Pieters is second on 11 under, while Eduardo de la Riva of Spain and Bernd Wiesberger of Austria are four strokes behind Sullivan.

Play is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. local time Saturday due to a bad weather forecast. Last year's edition was reduced to 36 holes.
