It was Lagergren who applied the pressure early, striking two birdies from the first three holes on the front nine. However, a pair of bogeys transitioned the Swede awkwardly from the front to the back nine.
He recovered well to hit another birdie, this one at the par-five 11th. Lagergren then produced an exquisite chip shot to seal par at the 12th.
The European Tour's official site relayed highlights of the deft stroke:
It was a strong comeback after those back-to-back bogeys. He then went three-under after another birdie on the 14th.
However, a bogey at the 15th summed up Lagergren's erratic back nine. It also let Dredge back into the lead.
Lagergren soon found himself in trouble again when he was in a bunker on the par-three 16. But another suave chip gave him a great chance for par, an opportunity he seized. It put Lagergren one shot behind Dredge in the overall standings.
That was as close as he got, though, because a pair of bogeys bracketed that par and sent him sliding down the board. Lagergren was off the mark on both the par-four 15 and the par-four 17.
Day 2 leader Dredge had his own eventful day. One of the Welshman's more notable moments came when he produced a literal shock driving off from the 12th:
That misfortune resulted in a double bogey on the hole. A birdie at the 14th got Dredge back on track, but he needed a few more of those over the final four holes.
Still, he had to settle for par on the 15th. But it was enough to get Dredge back to par on the day.
He maintained his steady form with par on each of the next two holes before a late blip at the 18th. Dredge found himself in the rough and took two shots to reach the green before eventually settling for a bogey.
American Lipsky finished his round earlier,and ended the day on 67. Consistency was the key for Lipsky, as he found par at 12 holes.
He and Pieters are among those just one shot off the lead heading into Day 4.
