  • There are 32 blokes under par at Coolum today. Makes American Kee-dae Lee's +14 through 9 holes look a bit shabby. #hopeforusall #AusPGA

    Marc Leishman the only Australian to win on the PGA Tour this year is making his way up the leaderboard. Starting his round on the 10th tee he made the turn at even par but with four birdies from holes 1 -7 he now sits at 4-under par tied 4th.

    Robert Allenby makes a good save on the first hole by sinking a putt from off the green. The four time champion will be looking to finish the year off on a high.

    View from the tee on the par 5 5th. Need to stay out of trouble with the drive here to set up a possible eagle opportunity.

    Coverage on One HD is lagging big time. It doesn't even have Percy in the Top 10. Question is Lonard still on -2 (and how many holes has he played?) Thanks!

    Both Clark and Ogilvy hit their tee shots into the rough on 8, this is a angle they had to the green

    Tour rookie Daniel Popovic picks up another birdie on the 18th, he moves to 5-under and T2. A little bit of background info for you, Daniel won PGA Tour of Australasia Qualifying School to earn his card for 2012. He finished inside the top 10 at the Victorian Open, his first tournament on Tour and more recently at the NSW PGA Championship.

    Peter Fowler working on the flat stick. Trying to work on his club face and rhythm. He uses a computer system to give data or as Pete says, real feedback

    26-year-old Daniel Popovic is relishing his chance to play at the Australian PGA Championship presented by Coca-Cola for the first time. Is now 8-under thanks to five birdies in a row!

    Ogilvy moves up to T3 with a birdie at the 15th. The two eagles today might just be the spark he needed to put together a few solid rounds and get back in the winners circle.
