MALMO, Sweden (AP) Wales' Jamie Donaldson shot his second straight 4-under 69 on Friday to take a two-stroke lead in the Nordea Masters.

The three-time European Tour winner had five birdies and a bogey at Barseback.

''There were times when the ball wasn't where I wanted it to be, but I made some great escapes,'' Donaldson said. ''The chipping and putting has been better over the last couple of days. I have been playing quite nicely recently, but just not quite putting it all together. But the first couple of days here, I've been able to do that.''

Italy's Renato Paratore (72) was second, and France's Benjamin Hebert (71) and Englishmen Graeme Storm (68) and Max Orrin (73) followed at 5 under. Swedish star Henrik Stenson was tied for 25th at 1 under after a 72.
