Beijing - Spain's Pablo Larrazabal will head into the third day of the Volvo China Open in Beijing with a three-shot lead after signing for a 66 in the tournament's second round on Friday.

The current world No 106 has done well this season, attaining four top-15 finishes and tying for 11th at the Shenzhen International in southern China last week.

Tied for second behind him are France's Alexander Levy and South Africa's Dylan Frittelli, who recorded a course record 63 to reach 11-under.

Frittelli, 26, missed three of his first four cuts this season, but has upped his game of late, tying for fifth at the Shenzhen International.

His countryman, 30-year-old George Coetzee, shot 69 to tie with Belgian Thomas Detry for fifth at eight under.
