Jason Scrivener is still your leader by himself this time at -10 following Day 2 of this year’s Australian PGA Championship at the Royal Queensland Golf Club in Brisbane. He too never looked out of place of four under 67 today when Scrivener kept it up with plenty of pars, as well as four birdies on the front nine & Hole 12 with no bogeys at all.
But he will need to be aware of current British Open champion Cam Smith right behind him in 2nd at -9. Cam not only continued to be consistent on the front nine, but his improved progress of a whopping eight birdies including another the back nine that helped him work his way through the field of six under 65.
There is not only one Cameron fighting for the title, but there’s also another in Cameron John who is currently in Tied 3rd at -8. He may have fired off slow on Day 1 yesterday before he turned around with seven birdies including three on the back nine also with today’s score of six under 65.
Then we have a mix of International players looking to split Smith & Scrivener up top. We’ll start off with Japan’s Masahiro Kawamura where he played really well after an improved Friday run of five under 66 that helped him soar in Tied 3rd alongside Cam John. So does the likes of Adrian Meronk from Poland, China’s Yan Wei Lou & Spaniard Alejandro Canizares who are all currently in Tied 5th at -7.
Plus, don’t write off a some domestic stars such as Anthony Quayle and NZ’s Denzel Ieremia also in Tied 5th despite their respective scores today of 69 from 66 and 68 from 67. The same goes with Min Woo Lee & Adam Scott when both players may have came off their disappointing spells today; Although Scott sinked a nice long range putt birdie on the Par 3 17, but there’s still two days left for both players to rebound.
And we won’t see Jed Morgan defend his title in T78 following another sub-par score of three over 74 that saw him miss the cut, as well Lucas Herbert – who pulled out prior to Day 2 due to a sore back – as he looks to recover in time for next week’s Australian Open.
