The first scores of the morning are starting to come through with not too much to get excited about.

With scoring every three holes we are yet to have scores come through for overnight leader Anthony Brown but he is sure to be capitalising on these calm conditions.

In the first round the 2nd hole played the hardest with 47 players making bogey or worst. That is a trend which may continue today with already four of the 10 players to have played the second making bogey.

The easiest hole on course yesterday was the par-5 17th. David Bransdon believes this is a real risk / reward hole where he made birdie in the 1st round. Read his strategy for playing the hole here.

How quickly things can change on a leaderboard. Anthony Brown made a bogey on the par-4 12th to give up his advantage over amateur Kade McBride who tees off in the afternoon field.

Meanwhile South Australian Tom Bond opened with a birdie-bogey-birdie run to join the pair tied for the lead on 6-under the card.

Also off to a strong start is New Zealander Michael Long who with two consecutive birdies moves his way into the top-10.

McBride tees off in the afternoon field but before he does find out a little more about him here courtesy of the Courier Mail.

Friday 29th August, 9.25am

After six holes of their second rounds Tom Bond and Anthony Brown remain tied for the lead at 6-under. Joining them is amateur McBride however he is yet to tee off.

After a horror start which included three consecutive bogeys Kim Felton is getting his round abck on track with a birdie on the par-4 6th.

Craig Hancock has been playing steady golf with seven straight pars on the front nine before a birdie on the par-5 8th moved him to 2-over for the tournament.

While Anthony Brown was able to recapture the outright lead with a birdie on the par-5 17th un untimely bogey on the 1st dropped him back again.

Interestingly before yesterday, Brown had never broken 70 at Brookwater.

Meanwhile Tom Bond came through the turn at 2-under the card which makes him 7-under for the tournament and the outright leader.

A few more birdies on the back nine would put some breathing space between him and amateur Kade McBride who tees off in over an hour.  

With 50 Professionals and ties making it to the weekend rounds the cut is currently sitting at 4-over but this is expected to change with the afternoon field due to tee off in 15 minutes.

Kade McBride is about to start his second round and will be pleased to see the morning field haven’t opened up a gap.

He will start with the outright lead after Tom Bond and Anthony Brown have faded late in their rounds to be T2 on 5-under.

Peter O’Malley has teed off in his second round with his son Tom on the bag.

Friday 29th August, 12.38am

As the morning field is finishing not much has changed on the leaderboard.

Brown managed to birdie the 8th hole to ensure he tied Kade McBride for the lead. However the inform amateur is now on the course for his second round.

An unfortunate double bogey on the 18th put a sour note on what had been a solid round for Tom Bond. He is 4-under and T4.

Kim Felton worked his way into the top-10 after opening with three bogeys. Showing his experience and patience he went on to post four birdies for a 1-under 71. This has him heading into the weekend at 3-under.

The best round of the morning was 2-under 70 scored by Craig Hancock to be 1-over T27, Kevin Conlong to be 3-over T35 and Kalem Richardson who unfortunately looks on the wrong side of the cut line at 8-over.




Friday 29th August, 1.26pm

So far none of the afternoon field is making a run for the lead but conditions are beautiful here so hopefully we see someone go low.

Amateur Kade McBride has dropped a shot early and is now tied with David Bransdon for second.

Daniel Fox has opened with two birdies to jump into the top-10.

The lowest man on course at the moment is South Australian Max McCardle. He has birdied four of his first six holes to be 1-under for the tournament and T11.

The cut is currently sitting at 5-over.

Max McCardle is the hot man on course! He made the turn at 5-under the card and is now -2 and T9.

Jake Higginbottom is also playing well. He is 3-under after 12 holes to be 3-under and T5.

Anthony Brown is looking safe to lead into the weekend. His closest competitor, Kade McBride is 1-over after 9 holes today.

The cut line is currently 5-over

Friday 29th August, 4.16pm

Max McCardle has found yet another biride on the par par-4 3rd. He is now 6-under today with three holes to play.

Could his secret weapon be his caddy? Meet 11 year old Matthew Van Eden a Member at Brookwater for almost 5years who plays off a handicap of 18.5. Looks like Max and Matt are combining for a great second round!

Friday 29th August, 4.58pm

It’s been a busy 45 minutes. Fiji International runner-up Jake Higginbottom has come in with a 5-under 67 to be outright third heading into the weekend.

Amateur Kade McBride who had been 1-over for most of the day managed to birdie his second last hole to get back to even par. He now heads into the weekend tied for the lead with Anthony Brown.

South Australian Max McCardle walked to his last hole at 7-under the card. A birdie at the 9th would have seen him claim the Brookwater course record. But he made his first bogey of the round to finish with a 6-under 66. Still an extremely impressive round and sets him up for the weekend. He will start the third round T6.

The cut is currently at 6-over the card.
