Dinwiddie, Van der Walt tied for first

SAINT-OMER, France (AP) - England's Robert Dinwiddie shot a 5-under 66 on Friday for a share of the lead with South Africa's Tjaart Van der Walt after the second round of the European Tour's Najeti Hotels Open.

Dinwiddie had a bogey-free round to join Van der Walt, the first-round leader, at 4-under 138 at Aa Saint-Omer Golf Club. Dinwiddie also led after the second round in 2010 en route to a second-place finish.

``I know the course very well and I have a lot of good feelings around here,'' Dinwiddie said. ``I did not think I would be leading after the afternoon but I knew I was in a good position no matter what.

``I didn't think I would be teeing it up after taking a bad step on Tuesday morning and damaging a bad disc in my back. I couldn't hit a ball on Wednesday, so I honestly thought I had no chance. But I just iced it and took a lot of anti-inflammatories and recovered. So it was great.''

Van der Walt had a 71.

``I didn't hit bad shots, but my chipping around the greens was not great and all my bogeys were from next to the green,'' Van der Walt said. ``I'm disappointed but I'm still in there and I was shocked walking up 18 to see I was still top.''

England's Chris Hanson and Simon Wakefield were a stroke back along with France's Victor Rio. Hanson and Wakefield shot 68, and Riu had a 71.
