CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) — Tommy Fleetwood and Michael Hoey left a trail of big names behind them, sharing the second-round lead at the Dunhill Links Championship on Friday.

Fleetwood, who leads the second-tier Challenge Tour rankings, shot a 9-under 63 at Kingsbarns, the same course where first-round leader Hoey shot a second straight 66. They both have 12-under totals of 132.

Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen is one shot back after a 67 in unseasonably warm conditions at Carnoustie, while 2010 U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell is tied at 10 under with three others after shooting 67.

Defending champion Martin Kaymer shot 67 at Carnoustie, a stroke further back. Rory McIlroy and second-ranked Lee Westwood are 7 under.
