Chris Wood plays his tee shot on the 10th hole during the second round of the Mercedes-Benz Championship at Gut Larchenhof Golf Club on Sept. 11, 2009 in Cologne, Germany.

COLOGNE, Germany — Scott Strange shot a 4-under 68 and Chris Wood had a 69 to share a one-stroke lead after the second round of the Mercedes-Benz Championship on Friday.

Soren Hansen (71) had a one-shot lead until a double-bogey on the 18th hole. Ross Fisher and James Kingston each shot 69 to also trail the leaders by one stroke.

Wood missed a birdie putt at the final hole that would have left him in sole possession of the lead.

Europe’s Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie, without a top-10 finish since June of last year, had a 69 to finish six shots behind the leaders.

Bernhard Langer, trying to become the oldest winner on the European Tour at 52, watched his chances fade with a 75.
