Padraig Harrington seizes lead

JOHOR BAHRU, Malaysia -- Three-time major champion Padraig Harrington shot a 5-under 67 to take the lead after the second round at the Iskandar Johor Open.

Harrington totaled 13-under 131 on Friday, one shot better than Taiwan's Lin Wen-tang at the Horizon Hills Golf and Country Club in Malaysia's southern Johor state.

Lin, a five-time winner in Asia, narrowly missed an eagle at the last hole to tie Harrington. He finished with the day's best round of 65 in windy conditions.
