Rafa Cabrera-Bello of Spain shot a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke lead in the second round of the BMW International Open on Friday.
Cabrera-Bello, who opened with a 65 Thursday for a three-way lead with Lasse Jensen of Denmark and Daniel Gaunt of England, made six birdies and a bogey, leaving him at 12-under 132 halfway through the European Tour event.
Jensen (69) dropped two strokes off the pace while Gaunt (73) fell six behind.
James Morrison of England shot a 66 to move second, ahead of Jensen and Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey, who shot a 65 including nine birdies for the day's best round.
Home favorite and 2014 U.S. Open winner Martin Kaymer missed the 2-under par cut by one stroke with four bogeys in a round of 71.
