Call-up Bond has 1-shot lead at Wales Open wire reports

NEWPORT, Wales -- Welshman Liam Bond is making the most of a late call-up to the event, shooting a 3-under 68 Friday to take a one-shot lead after the second round of the Wales Open.

Bond, who is ranked No. 1,528, was invited to play Wednesday after receiving a call from the European Tour during a round with his 7-year-old daughter on a local course.

After opening with a first-round 69, he made five birdies on Friday to move to 5-under 137 at Celtic Manor, the 2010 Ryder Cup host.

First-round leader Espen Kofstad of Norway managed a 74 to tie Tjaart van der Walt of South Africa (71), one shot behind the leader.
