Lowry carded eight birdies in his 65, but hit back-to-back fives at five and six, while Matsuyama also registered eight one-unders and two bogies.
Anirbahn Lahiri and Bryce Molder are a shot further back on five-under. Molder was unable to complete his round as bad light brought an end to play with him having completed 16 holes.
