Atomu Shigenaga’s sizzling 66 left him tied for the lead with veteran Shingo Katayama after the second round of the Tsuruya Open on Friday.

The 41-year-old Katayama, who shared the overnight lead with two-time champion Hiroyuki Fujita, shot a 68 to stay even with Shigenaga. The 25-year-old Shigenaga is looking for his first victory in what has so far been a lackluster pro career. He made his pro debut in 2008 and posted one of his best scores here last year, when he finished in a tie for 25th.
