MADRID (AP) - English golfer Lee Slattery shot a 6-under 66 on Friday to lead the Madrid Masters by one shot after the second round.

Slattery had seven birdies and one bogey in the second round at El Encin Golf Hotel to finish 11 under for the tournament.

He leads Spanish golfer Eduardo de la Riva and Italian Ryder Cup player Francesco Molinari going into the final two rounds at the weekend.

Defending champion and top-ranked player Luke Donald of England pulled within three shots of the lead at one point. But he fell back with two bogeys in the final three holes for a 70 and moved to 6 under for the tournament.
