    Cut projection: The cut will be made a 60+ ties, currently it is at even par. At the moment there are 60 players at even par or better. Six players still on course at even, if one of them makes a bogey the cut will move out to 1-over.

    Stuart Appleby birdies 18 to finish at +1 and now has a nervous wait to see if it is enough to get him to the weekend

    Sabbatini is just off the green at the back and will need to save par if he has any hope of making the cut.

    Senior taps in for par to finish at -6 overall.

    Sabbatini just misses the birdie, he wanted that so bad to ensure he played the weekend but now taps in for par and had to wait it out with the other players on EVEN. Leishman sinks his birdie and moves to -5 at the halfway point of the tournament.

    Senior with the media now. He said is happy with his round and said even with the wind strengthening over the weekend its a course you can score on.

    Gillespie just made a double on the Par 5 15th to have the projected cut move to +1 but with a number of players still on course around that mark, it is still a nervous wait for those in the clubhouse...

    Hi I would just like to congratulate my son for caddying the co leader Zhang. Drew is a 19 year old from the small country town of Gloucester NSW. He is a student from an Australian College. He is the Junior Champion of his local club and has many members following him of TV.

    Senden with 2 birdies and 2 bogeys already today. Has had a very inconsistent week so far, would be great to see him turn it around and finish off strong in what has been a great year for him in the US.

    Great birdie putt from Brad Kennedy moves him out of the pack at T5 and up to 8-under, T3 with Geoff Ogilvy and Matt Griffin.

    Zhang hit his driver off the first into the water hazard. Is forced to take a one shot penalty, he will drop on the cart path and then will take free relief from the path.

    Robert Allenby has won the Australian PGA Championship four times, two of those have been in Coolum. He is lurking at T6 7-under and already showing he is serious about winning a fifth, Robert is 3-under after 6 holes on moving day.

    Stephen Dartnall had to withdraw from the Talisker Masters this year due to a wrist injury. Doesn't seem to be an issue today, he is 4-under after eight holes to be T4 8-under.

    I am now down on the 4th hole where Griffin has landed his approach shot on the right edge of the green.
