VILAMOURA, Portugal (AP) Nino Bertasio led the Portugal Masters after shooting a second consecutive round of 6-under-par 65 on Friday.

The Italian golfer will enter the third round with a one-shot lead over Marc Warren of Scotland (64) and Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark (65).

Bertasio hit six birdies on a blemish-free day at Victoria Golf Course.

”I’m feeling good,” Bertasio said. ”I had a bogey-free round and it was very easy golf. I just missed one green and I chipped it to one foot so I never really struggled to make pars.”

Joost Luiten (68), who had a share of the lead after the first round, and Jason Scrivener (67) were two strokes behind.
