Peter Uihlein overcame tricky conditions to take the outright lead after two rounds of the Open de Espana in Valencia on Friday. Uihlein, who started the day in equal 12th, carded six birdies and two bogeys at a windy Parador de El Saler course on his way to an impressive round of 68. The American moved to six under overall, one stroke ahead of joint overnight leader Felipe Aguilar, who slipped to equal second alongside France&aposs Raphael Jacquelin and Swede Rikard Karlberg. Jacquelin climbed 58 places after carding a brilliant 66, while Karlberg missed out on the lead after posting bogeys on the final two holes. “I am very pleased with the way I played,” Jacquelin said. “Even yesterday, I shot one over but hit the ball pretty good. “I have been patient and it paid today; that&aposs the game of golf. I am very pleased, six under, especially on this course – which is not easy.” Scotland&aposs Marc Warren and Craig Lee led a group of five players in a tie for fifth at four under alongside Englishman Eddie Pepperell and Danes Morten Orum Madsenand and Andreas Harto. Local hope Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano slipped to equal 14th after shooting an underwhelming 73 to be two under overall. “I didn&apost play as good as yesterday but overall I&aposm in a good position for the weekend,” he said.
