Louis Oosthuizen shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead in the Malaysian Open after the completion of the rain-delayed second round.

Oosthuizen, the South African star coming off a playoff loss to Bubba Watson in the Masters, had a 10-under 134 total on Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club's West Course.

Fellow South Africans Hennie Otto and Jbe Kruger were tied for second with Scotland's Stephen Gallacher. Otto and Kruger finished the round Friday, with Otto shooting a 64 and Kruger carding a 65. Gallacher completed his 68 on Saturday.

The event is sanctioned by the European and Asian tours.
