    I am with Popovic, Ogilvy and Zhang. Popovic hits a perfect approach to set up birdie on 4.

    Zhang follows with an even better approach to leave himself a 4-5ft birdie putt.

    It's been a bit slow down here on the 5th with Goggin having to return to the tee to hit a provisional ball.

    Popovic splits the middle with his drive while Ogilvy is in the bunker on the right. Zhang way back but in the fairway.

    Zhang and Ogilvy both safe in the fairway with their second while Popovic waits, he must be going for the green in 2.

    Popovic sprays it way left.

    Could be difficult for Popovic from here, the risk reward of going for the green in two.

    Meanwhile Ogilvy and Zhang are both on the green in 3. Birdie putts for both.

    Popovic takes a drop but still has a sign in his path to the green.

    This time he gets it up and out, with the ball on the green in 5.

    team, can James Nitties avoid one of his customary double/triples and get into contention for tomorrow? 3 under today and 5 for the round. needs another 3 birdies coming home?

    Popovic's ball on the 7th green. Ogilvy went off the back and Zhang has 13ft for birdie.

    Ogilvy chips on and now had about 9ft for par, will be difficult.

    Zhang striking the ball the best in this group. He hits the middle of the green on the par-3 8th. Ogilvy makes the front edge and Popovic misses the green right but can either putt or chip from there.

    Popovic elects to putt and pushes the ball 8ft past the hole.

    Zhang on the left rough but with a good lie. Ogilvy and Popovic both in the fairway.

    Popovic with a long putt to come on 9. Ogilvy has a great chance for birdie, whilst Zhang finds the left trap.
