JAKARTA, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Felipe Aguilar shot an 8-under-par 62 Friday and owns a 2-stroke lead halfway through the Indonesia Open.

Aguilar's 36-hole total is 13-under-par 127. James Kamte, who was among the players whose first round was suspended by weather Thursday, ended up the first-round leader with a 62 and had a 3-under 67 in his second round. He and Prom Meesawat, who had a 63 in the second round, are tied for second at 11-under 129.

Aguilar's 62 could have been several strokes better as he missed a series of short putts that had been set up by sharp iron play. He said he had only two putts longer than 15 feet in the round.

"I don't want to sound egotistical but if I had putted really well today I could have had 13- or 14-under for the round," Aguilar said. "I felt like I was throwing darts at the pins."

Aguilar, playing the back nine first in the second round, had four birdies and five pars in his first nine holes. He matched that on the front, getting four birdies in five holes on Nos. 3-7.
