Scrivener, tied for the lead on the first lap, shot 67 on Friday to take over the lead.

“Yesterday was pretty stress-free and I hit the ball tee to green really well,” said Scrivener. “Today it was a little scrappier, got away with a few things and scrambled well. All in all quite satisfied.”

Masahiro Kawamura and Cameron John are tied for third at 8 under.
