TURIN, Italy -- Francesco Molinari shot a 5-under 67 Friday to take a share of the lead on home soil after the second round of the Italian Open.

Aiming to duplicate his 2006 victory, Molinari is tied with Felipe Aguilar of Chile and Simon Thornton of Ireland at 9-under 135 at the Golf Club Torino.

A Turin native, Molinari has been the centre of attention at the tournament.

He said "this is a special, special week for me. I was emotional yesterday on the 10th tee at 8 a.m. with only 50 people watching, so now with all these people on my course it's a great feeling."

Molinari's Ryder Cup teammate Nicolas Colsaerts lost his overnight lead when he bogeyed the 16th and 18th to sit one stroke back.
