GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) Sweden's David Lingmerth shot a 4-under 68 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead after two rounds of the Australian PGA championship.
Lingmerth had a 36-hole total of 3-under 141 on a Royal Pines course playing slightly easier than Thursday, when rain and gusting winds prevented all but six players from finishing under par in the European Tour co-sanctioned event.
The group tied for second included American Peter Uihlein (67), England's Mark Foster (73) and first-round leader Zander Lombard of South Africa (75).
American Brandt Snedeker, the highest-ranked player in the tournament at No. 38, missed the cut after an opening 84. He shot 75 Friday and was 15-over to miss qualifying by nine strokes.
Defending champion Greg Chalmers shot 76-75 to also miss the cut by one stroke.
