SUZHOU, China (AP) — South Korea's Kim Do-hoon shot a 3-under 69 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead after the second round at the China Open.

Kim is 11-under 133 at the Jinji Lake Golf Club in Suzhou outside of Shanghai.

Thai veteran Thongchai Jaidee, Y.E. Yang of South Korea and Welshman Jamie Donaldson are in a three-way for second place.

Kim could have been further ahead, but he bogeyed the 18th to go with his four birdies in the $2.5 million event, which is co-sanctioned by OneAsia and the European Tour.

Thongchai, who like Kim had a sizzling opening round of 64, managed a 70 on Friday. He was playing with an injured left arm that forced him to pull out of the second round of the Masters last week.

Yang shot a 66, while Donaldson carded a 68 on the par-72 course.

Pablo Larrazabal of Spain and Finland's Mikko Ilonen were tied for fifth, a stroke further back, while China's top player, Liang Wenchong, was in seventh place at 8 under after a 70.

U.S. Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin was tied for eighth at 7 under with South Koreans Kim Dae-hyun and Noh Seung-yul after an up and down round in which he mixed four bogeys with six birdies.
