(CNN) -- Retief Goosen continues to lead the BMW International Open in Munich after adding a four-under-par 68 to his opening 64 on Friday.

Goosen added a 68 to his opening round eight-under-64 to continue to lead the BMW International.

Goosen added a 68 to his opening round eight-under-64 to continue to lead the BMW International.

Goosen lies on 12-under-par, one stroke ahead of Dane Soren Kjeldsen, while Nick Dougherty grabbed two eagles in a 65 to lift him up from 23rd to joint third with Scotsman David Drysdale.

South African Goosen went 33 holes without a bogey, but after dropping a stroke at the 441-yard seventh he closed with his 13th birdie of the week.

Meanwhile, Kjeldsen matched Dougherty's round just a week after having to pull out of the U.S. Open with an ear infection.

Elsewhere, 51-year-old Bernhard Langer carded a second successive 68 for eight-under-par to give him another opportunity to become the oldest winner in European Tour history.

Former European Open champion Kenneth Ferrie finally made his first cut of the season after returning from the U.S. Tour, but it is now three misses out of three for Shane Lowry as a professional following his amazing Irish Open win as an amateur.

Lowry needed one birdie in the last four holes to survive, but instead bogeyed the 15th and 17th holes to miss the cut.
