    Sep 3, 2016

    CRANS-MONTANA, Switzerland — Tour newcomer Romain Langasque of France shot a 7-under 63 to share the lead after the European Masters second round on Friday.

    The 21-year-old Langasque, playing only his fifth European Tour event, fired five birdies, an eagle-3 and no bogeys to move to 9 under alongside Richard Bland of England and Australian Richard Green, who had rounds of 64 and 66 respectively.

    "I'm quite sure I will be on the European Tour next year, so I play without pressure," said Langasque, who leads the money list on the second-tier Challenge Tour.

    On another day of warm sunshine and low scoring in the Swiss Alps, Alex Noren of Sweden also had a 63 to join a three-way tie one stroke off the lead with Scott Hend of Australia and Richard Lee of Canada.

    Andrew Johnston, the popular Englishman known to fans as "Beef," was in a group of five players on 7 under after a morning round of 68.
