Michael Campbell fired a 6-under 64 on Friday and moved one stroke clear of the field after two rounds of the Hong Kong Open.
Campbell finished 36 holes at 9-under-par 131. The former U.S. Open champion has fallen off the map in recent years. He started the season with 10 missed cuts in his first 12 events.
The New Zealander has bounced back of late as this will be the sixth time in his last nine tournaments that he made it to the weekend. He took third place at the Portugal Masters a month ago.
That was his best finish since he ended third at the 2008 British Masters.
Miguel Angel Jimenez posted a 3-under 67 to finish two rounds at 8-under-par 132. He was joined in second place by Fredrik Andersson Hed and Lian-wei Zhang, who both shot 66 on Friday at Hong Kong Golf Club.
Anders Hansen is alone in fifth at minus-7 after posting a 64 in round two. First-round leader Javier Colomo stumbled to a 1-over 71 to dip into a share of sixth. He was joined at 5-under-par 135 by Daisuke Kataoka (67).
Former major champions Y.E. Yang, Padraig Harrington, John Daly and world No. 1 Rory McIlroy, last year's winner, all missed the cut.
