Veteran Richard Green's return to his best form has culminating in another low round and a share of the lead in the Omega European Masters in Switzerland.

Green, an 18-season veteran of the European Tour, made three consecutive birdies on the back nine in a second-round 66 to reach nine-under through two rounds at Crans-sur-Sierre, tied with England's Richard Bland and Romain Langasque of France.

"It's been a bit of a difficult road this year and it's nice to be playing some nice golf again," the lefty from Melbourne said. "My game is feeling very solid and the work I've put in in the last few months to try and get it right, it's starting to show some signs again. I'm very happy with the limited amount of bogeys and to keep them off the card and keep progressing, attacking for birdies and if I can keep doing that over the weekend I'll be happy."

Green has not won in Europe since 2010.

Another Aussie, Olympican Scott Hend, also is in contention at eight-under, just one shot from the lead.
