    Ogilvy has a great birdie chance on 7, Millar missed the green right but produces a great shot to maybe save par.

    If you are coming out to join us at The Lakes a good group to follow would be one of Australia's favourites Staurt Appleby and American young gun Kyle Stanley. They are the next group to tee off.

    Ogilvy pushes the putt left past the hole and taps in for par. Millar also misses to come away with a bogey, moving him to -2.

    The defending Champ misses his birdie putt on the low side. Solid par and -3 for his first 9 holes this morning. Moves to T17 with easier 9 to come

    Wind starting to pick up. Still good conditions for scoring but its only going to get harder. I am on the 2nd green now.

    Watson makes par on 9 and continues his struggle on that side, +4 thru first 9 today

    Won Joon Lee hits a great shot into the 2nd green pulling up for a tap in par. He had been in trouble with his tee shot finding the sand.

    Watson continues struggle and drops another shot on 10. Great to hear his encouragement of Chamlers though

    Middle if the fairway on 11 for Chalmers. Might not get home as the par 5 is playing into the wind today

    Adam Scott and Kim Felton both on the left if the fairway on the 2nd. They just are waiting for Norris to hit out of the fairway bunker on 8 going the other direction.

    Chalmers pulls an iron from his bag and lays well back to give himself a full wedge into the back left pin

    Scott hit a ripper to have a great chance for birdie on two. Felton comes up way short.

    Watson also lays up left side of the fairway, first cut of rough

  • Defending #AusOpenGolf champ Greg Chalmers is 4-under through 10 holes and tied 11th. Only four back from Fraser
  • 12/8/2012 12:04:10 AM | PGA Media
    Felton hits the flag with his 3rd but still has decent putt.

    Scott sinks it for birdie to go two under in two holes, could he go really low?

    Chalmers burns the right edge for birdie with too much speed however makes his par on 11

    Delicate chip coming up for Chalmers on 12, lucky not to roll down into the trees. Watson middle of the green
