    James Nitties and Richard Green jump up to T4 with Mat Goggin and Brendan Jones. They birdied the 15th. Their playing partner, Matt Millar also birdied to go to 9-under. Birdies all round!

    Pamplings angle to the pin on 14. Plenty of green to work with.

    Pampling misses his putt from off the green and has 3-4ft for par. Jones chips to within 2ft and taps in for par.

    The grouping of James Nitties, Richard Green and Matthew Millar all bogey the 16th. This is the second consecutive hole that they have all had the same score. Nitties & Green now 10-under and Millar is 8-under.

    On the 14th Par3 (VW Hole-in-one) Popovic's tee shot flys low dead at the pin and holds on the green

    Pampling has just teed off on 15, he took a double bogey here in the first round. Daniel Popovic has also struggled on this hole in the opening rounds.

    B.Jones hits the edge of the green with his approach on 15. Ball comes to rest on a sprinkler head, lucky as it would have run way off the green to the right otherwise.

    Pampling safely on the green but has a ridge to negotiate with his putt.

    B.Jones discovers his ball on the sprinkler head and says to the crowd "bonus, I take back everything I muttered to myself on the way up here"

    B.Jones, misses this putt pictured but makes par, as does Pampling and Griffin.

    Pampling with some luck on 16, hitting the trees down the right and bouncing back onto the rough on the fairway edge, should have a clear shot at green.
