Ross McGowan held on to his one-shot lead at the Made in HimmerLand after shooting a six-under-par 65 in the second round.
McGowan sits on 15 under, one ahead of his fellow Englishman Richard Mansell and Italian Francesco Laporta after another day of low scoring in Denmark.
South African Justin Walters is on 10 under after following his first-round 63 with a second-round 69 that included six birdies, two bogeys and a double-bogey.
The 40-year-old McGowan, a two-time DP World Tour winner, signed for a 62 late on Thursday and was raring to go as an early starter on Friday.
He burst out the traps with six birdies on his front nine, holing big putts at the 1st, 7th and 9th with a combined length of around 60 feet.
His only dropped shot on the way out was at the 6th before back-to-back bogeys at the 14th and 15th, but he cancelled them out by firing his tee shot at the tiny 16th in to six feet and knocking in the putt before finishing with another birdie.
McGowan, who also birdied the 11th, said: “It was good, I played pretty solid early doors although I mis-clubbed a couple of times as the weather started getting warmer, and I didn’t adjust quick enough so I made a silly bogey at 6.
“But I bounced back well with a few birdies to close the front nine and then a couple of silly mistakes on the back nine and a couple of bogeys, but I finished well.
“It’s good, I’m looking forward to the weekend and hopefully I can put together a few rounds similar to the first two.”
