TURIN, Italy -- Francesco Molinari shot a 5-under 67 Friday to share the lead after the second round of the Italian Open.

Molinari tied Felipe Aguilar of Chile and Simon Thornton of Ireland at 9-under 135 at the Golf Club Torino.

A Turin native, Molinari has been the center of attention at the tournament. He won the event in 2006.

"This is a special, special week for me," Molinari said. "I was emotional yesterday on the 10th tee at 8 a.m. with only 50 people watching, so now with all these people on my course, it's a great feeling."

Molinari's Ryder Cup teammate Nicolas Colsaerts lost his overnight lead when he bogeyed the 16th and 18th. He's one stroke back.
