VALDERRAMA, Spain (AP) Pablo Larrazabal shot a par-71 in the second round through heavy winds to take a two-shot lead at the Spanish Open on Friday.

The Spaniard had four birdies but also a bogey on the second hole, followed by a 6 on the par-3 third after he hit the bunker.

Andrew Johnston of England shot 74 and is two shots behind Larrazabal.

Defending champion James Morrison (75), first-round leader Alexander Levy (76) and Alejandro Canizares (75) were all another shot back.

Larrazabal is hoping the wind - that held off Thursday - persists over the weekend.

Larrazabal says: ''If the wind blows like this, a level par or more total will win.''
