PERTH, Australia — Peter Hedblom shot a 3-under 69 Friday to take a two-stroke lead after two rounds of the Perth International.

The Swede, who is at 7-under 137, is two strokes clear of Ross Fisher, who had the lowest round of the day with a 67.

Needing a win to retain his European Tour card for next year, Hedblom says "my golf is strange right now because I hit really good shots and some really poor shots. But my putting has been good. So it's great right now to be leading."

Defending champion Bo Van Pelt has a share of eighth at 3 under, while Dustin Johnson, who had a share of the first-round lead, is tied for 21st at 1 under.
