South Africa's Christiaan Bezuidenhout sparked into life on his back nine to surge into a two-shot lead on day two of the Made in Denmark on Friday, while local hero Thorbjorn Olesen remains in prime position to secure qualification for the Ryder Cup.
Bezuidenhout followed up his opening round 66 at Silkeborg Ry Golf Club with a seven-under-par 65, sinking four successive birdies from the ninth hole.
Further gains on the 14th and 16th ensured he finished with 13-under overall heading into the weekend.
