MALELANE, South Africa (AP) Charl Schwartzel shot a 5-under 67 Friday to open a five-shot lead after the second round of the European Tour's season-opening Alfred Dunhill Championship.

Schwartzel, a three-time champion at Alfred Dunhill, made six birdies and a bogey for an 11-under total of 133 at the halfway point.

There was a four-way tie for second at Leopard Creek Country Club, with Pablo Martin Benavides, Richard Sterne, Benjamin Hebert and Joost Luiten on 6 under.

Defending champion Branden Grace struggled to a 73 to be tied for 51st on level par. Louis Oosthuizen carded 76 after needing eight shots on the par-3 No. 7 and was set to miss the cut.
