    Rickie Fowler with the perfect start. Sinks his approach shot from the fairway for eagle to move to -10 and tie it at the top with Adam Scott.

    Wow, Rickie Folwer has joined Adam Scott in the lead at -10 after holing his second shot for eagle two on his first hole. Hang onto your hats folks!!

    Rhein Gibson having an unbelievable start with three birdies in a row. Has moved inside the cut line and is at +1. If he keeps this up he may be looking to set a course record. Don't forget he shot a 16-under-par 55 at River Oaks Golf Club in Oklahoma, USA last year so he can go low.

    Cut line currently sitting at +1.
    • Kim Felton has just bogeyed holes 6 & 7 to move from inside the cut to the outside.
    • Ryan Fox with five bogeys in a row is now at +5 and missing the weekend. Still has 13 holes to play.
    • Peter Wilson also not traveling well with three bogeys in five holes to be at +4.
    All will need to get something going shortly if they wants to play the weekend.

    Richard Green has just tweeted he wore "green jocks" to support "Green for Adam Scott" Day on Friday in the second round of the Australian PGA Championship at Royal Pines. I would have thought just playing in Scott's group with the name Green was good enough. Good sport Greenie!!

    Adam Scott says around -20 could be the PGA winning score. That would be a PGA Champion record 4 round total...

    Not many players moving up the leaderboard. Gareth Paddison not doing to bad in T7 at -5. Windy conditions making scoring difficult.

    Michael Hendry in trouble on the 11th. Hit his drive way right and found water, took his drop and with his third still couldn't get it over the trees and back on the fairway. Staring at a double bogey which would take him to +1 and on the cut line. The 11th is playing second hardest today with only five birdies.

    Playing in the same group is Marc Leishman who is having a awful afternoon and is at Even par and battling to save par on the 11th.

    Marc Leishman goes on to save his par on the 11th and remain at Even par. Michael Hendry wasn't so fortunate and recorded a triple bogey and is now at +2.

    Rickie Fowler makes bogey on the 12th and moves back to -7 and in outright third. Hasn't made a birdie today and has just the lone eagle on the 1st hole.

    Nathan Green wearing green and has found the green fairway on the 13th. Quiet day with just the one bogey and one birdie to be even for the day and -5 for the championship. He will be hoping for a few birdies to finish off and be amongst the leaders to start the weekend.

    45 minutes until blogging starts for round 3. Can anyone make up ground on Adam Scott or will he continue to control the championship. It is sure to be a great afternoon of golf at Royal Pines.

    Cameron Percy making a nice move early today with six birdies in his first 10 holes. Just a single bogey on the 9th and he is now sitting at -5, he may have the low round of the day if he keeps this up.

    Could be a packed leaderboard at the top if this wind gets up. Lets hope for a full shootout on Sunday with plenty of players in contention.

    Enjoy your lunch Wayne but back to the golf its good to see Stephen Leaney playing well today. Three birdies through 10 holes and is now sitting at -4 overall and in T11. Meanwhile Cameron Percy has slowed up with no more birdies since hole 10. He is currently playing the 14th which is currently the hardest hole on the course with the 18th playing second hardest.

    Nick Flanagan with a bogey free day so far. Through 15 holes and currently -4 for the round and -3 overall in T15. Couple more birdies coming in and he may sneak into the top 10.

    Other players with under par completed rounds include Nick Cullen (68), Peter Senior (69), Brody Ninyette (69) and Aron Price (69).
