PARIS, June 27 (UPI) -- England's David Lynn and Spain's Pablo Larrazabal are co-leaders after 36 holes at the European Tour's Open de France golf tournament in Paris.

They are both at 7-under-par 135 after two rounds.

Lynn, who began the day in a tie for 28th place, shot up the leader-board Friday with a 6-under 65 while Larrazabal, the first-round leader by one stroke, managed 1-under 70.

Lynn sank a shot from the bunker for birdie at No. 18 to grab a piece of the 36-hole lead.

"When I made a double bogey seven on the ninth I wasn't happy at all, but I knew that I was playing well," Lynn said.

"I started off a little tired because I was watching the match and I was a little nervous so made a bogey on the first," Larrazabal said after a windy day at Le Golf National golf course.

Colin Montgomerie (68) and Lee Westwood (68) joined a group of five players tied for third place at 5-under 137.
