The Swedes continued to dominate the Nordea Masters on day two with local man Jens Dantorp and teenage amateur star Marcus Kinhult leading the way on nine under par.

Dantorp, who hails from Malmö and is attached to the host venue, PGA Sweden National, and 18 year old Kinhult, who recently won the prestigious Lytham Trophy, both carded four under par rounds of 68 to lead by two shots from Germany's Max Kieffer and another Swede, Sebastian Soderberg.

Kinhult became only the second amateur in history to lead a European Tour event after two rounds thanks to five birdies and a bogey, and he credited the help of European Senior Tour player Barry Lane, who, like the youngster, is a member at Skaftö Golf Club on Sweden's west coast.

World Number Four Henrik Stenson birdied the last for a 72 and a two under par total, but defending champion Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand missed the halfway cut following two rounds of 73.

The leading Australian at the halfway stage is Scott Hend in 52nd position.
