"It was very difficult and not much fun to be out there," said Schwab, who has two top-10 finishes this season. "But, in the end, it turned out to be a good day for me." Romain Langasque was the other player to shoot a 66 and was tied for second place with Alejandro Canizares (69), who had been in a five-way share of the lead on 5 under par after the first round.
Alvaro Quiros (67), Robert MacIntyre (70) and Bernd Wiesberger (69) were tied for fourth place, three shots behind Schwab.
