Benn Barham holds his Austrian Open lead
England's Benn Barham's 5-under-par 66 Friday helped him maintain his lead halfway through the European Tour's Austrian Open in Vienna.
He increased his lead by one stroke after Thursday's 8-under 63, and his bogey-less second round included five birdies.
You never know what will happen in this game (but) with the way my season is going I needed a different direction to freshen things up.
Barham, who is seeking his first tournament victory, has benefited by working with a new coach starting this week.
Green also shot 5-under 66, and at 11-under 131, is alone in second place.
Scotland's Scott Drummond (68) is third at 10-under 132, while three others are 9-under 133, tied for fourth.
