JO­HAN­NES­BURG (AP) — Charl Schwartzel ea­gled the 17th on his way to an 8-un­der 63 and a one-shot lead af­ter the se­cond round of the South African Open on Fri­day.

The 2011 Masters cham­pion moved to 12-un­der 130 over­all and re­placed Louis Oosthuizen (70) at the top of the leader­board at the Rand­park Golf Club.

Schwartzel had six birdies but only took the lead with the ea­gle on his se­cond-to­last hole when his ap­proach bounced on the green and landed on the far fringe be­fore the back­spin kicked in.
