Pablo Larrazabal takes two-shot lead at Spanish Open

SOTOGRANDE, Spain -- Pablo Larrazabal shot a par 71 in the second round through heavy winds to take a two-shot lead at the Spanish Open on Friday.

The Spaniard had four birdies, but he also got a bogey on the second hole, followed by a 6 on the par-3 third after he hit the bunker.

Andrew Johnston of England shot 74 and is two shots behind Larrazabal.

Defending champion James Morrison (75), first-round leader Alexander Levy (76) and Alejandro Canizares (75) were all another shot back.

Larrazabal is hoping the wind, which held off Thursday, persists over the weekend.

"If the wind blows like this, a level par or more total will win," Larrazabal said.
