Kuala Lumpur - Billy Hurley III fired a 67 Friday to take a two-shot lead after two rounds of the CIMB Classic at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club.

Hurley had six birdies in his first nine holes to charge to the lead and finished the second round at 10 under, two strokes ahead of fellow American Kevin Streelman in the jointly sanctioned PGA Tour and Asian Tour event.

A group of seven players was a stroke further back in a share of third place at 7 under, including defending champion Ryan Moore, Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood, who had a hole-in-one to help him move into contention for his second tournament win at this course in seven months.
