Larrazabal, Jimenez lead at KLM Open

ZANDVOORT, Netherlands (AP) - Pablo Larrazabal shot a 4-under 66 on Friday to join fellow Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez atop the leaderboard after the second round at the KLM Open.

First-round leader Jimenez, who won the tournament in 1994, shot a bogey-free 67. The co-leaders are at 9-under totals of 131.

``This course suits me,'' said Jimenez. ``It's not a very long course but you have to have the ball in position.''

The 49-year-old veteran is chasing his 20th European Tour title.

Larrazabal briefly held the outright lead before he bogeyed the 16th.

Three-time champion Simon Dyson matched the course record at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club with a 63 to join fellow Englishman Oliver Fisher and Julien Quesne of France in a tie for second - one shot behind the leaders.

Dyson won two of his titles in the Netherlands on the links-like Kennemer course overlooking the Dutch North Sea coast, while the third came in Hilversum.

``I've done well in previous years and played well around it today,'' he said of the course. ``I played really solid apart from the last two holes and never looked like making bogey.''

So far, his only dropped shots of the week came on the par-4 first hole of the first round, which he double-bogeyed.

Jorge Campillo of Spain also shot a 63 - which included six birdies on the front nine - and is in a tie for seventh at 6 under. He was in position to set a new course record, but three-putted for bogey on the 18th.
