JOHANNESBURG -- Charl Schwartzel shot a 7-under 65 on Friday to earn a share of the lead at the European Tour's season-opening South African Open.

The 2011 Masters champion had five birdies and an eagle in his opening nine en route to a 12-under 132, along with Marco Crespi (67) after two rounds at Glendower Golf Club.

Morten Orum Madsen (66) was a shot behind the leaders.

Overnight leader Matthew Nixon (72) slipped into a tie for seventh and two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen (71) is tied for 12th, five shot back.
