"There's still a lot of golf to be played - I need to put myself in a great position going down the back nine on Sunday."
Osthuizen had three birdies and an eagle on the four par-fives on the Mission Hills course and was pleased with the way he putted during his nine-under effort.
"I started off a bit shaky with a bogey on the second, but immediately made birdie and was putting really well," he said.
"I gave myself a lot of opportunities for birdie and if you make the putts you shoot a low number."
Ireland's Shane Lowry is the highest placed of the European contingent in a tie for fourth at 10 under, six behind Oosthuizen.
Of his second-round 68, Lowry said: "I didn't birdie two easy par fives and made a bad bogey on the sixth, but other than that I played lovely all day and gave myself a lot of chances.
"What's not to enjoy? I'm playing a World Golf Championship and I'm up there in the top five going into the weekend."
