HONG KONG (AP) Rafa Cabrera Bello extended his lead to three strokes at the Hong Kong Open on Friday after a 5-under 65.

Cabrera Bello, who led by one stroke after an opening 64 at the Hong Kong Golf Club, is at 11-under 129 overall. Sam Brazel is second after a second consecutive 66.

"There are birdies out there, it is a tricky course," Cabrera Bello said. "I felt I paid my dues here other years as well from not knowing the course and not playing it smart enough. I think this year I'm playing it good."
