    A top 3 finish this week will move Geoff Ogilvy back inside the top 50 on the Official World Golf Rankings.

    Matt any idea of projected cut ?

    Hi Greg, projected cut has just blown out +1, but there are plenty of players out on course still so this could move back to even by end of play.

    Zhang has just birdied the Par-5 12 moving to T2 at -8 overall.

    Kurt Barnes is making up a lot of ground this afternoon. After a 2-over first round he's 7-under through 14 holes today and into the top 10. His round so far includes an eagle on 12.

    has leishman got what it takes to win this event ?..is he playing well enough to day to cartch the leaders ?

    Hi Shuffy61, Leishman is playing solid today but is 5 shots back with the hardest holes to come. Only two holes on the back 9 are playing under par so some players may find it hard to make up ground on the leader Popovic.

    Leishmans approach shot went to the far edge of the green and rolled back to the first cut of rough, no birdie on 10 for Leishman

    Nice picture Matt, the 11th can be a really exciting hole especially when the pin is on the right making the players go over the water to get close. Where is the pin today?

    Leishman in the trees after an poor tee shot, Senior finds the fairway dead center on 12 and Sabatini has about 30 yards on both of them

    Jason Norris five under today and up to T25 at -3.

    Leishman cuts it across the fairway gets good distance from a difficult lie

    Barnes still has 17 & 18 to play. He had a triple bogey on 18 yeaterday... let's hope he can put that out of his mind.

    Bogey for Sabbatini and Par for both Senior and Leish on 14

    David Fox, the OneAsia Media Manager, has spent some time on course watching Zhang's round and says his iron play has been the key to his game. Hitting it close to the pin and giving himself plenty of easy birdie putts.

    Zhang bounces back with a birdie on the Par-4 17 to once again take the outright lead at -11.

    Hi everyone, Matt is on his way back in and I am going to head up to the 16th and catch up with Senior, Leishman and Sabbatini.

    A bogey on the last to Zhang, and he will share the lead with Popovic into Round 3

    Another birdie to La'Cassie on the 6th and he moves to -3 for today and -6 (T8) overall

    Seniors approach just holds the green. Sabbatini and Leishman with the easier putts on 16.
