    The wind has definitely sprung up in the last 15min, just in time for the afternoon players. Watch out for Gareth Paddison who enjoys windy conditions

    Sorry we had a scoring glitch with Spargo's scores. He actually made bogey on the 1st and is back at -4 for the tournament.

    Watson makes his birdie on the 8th and is at +2 for the tournament. Hopefully he can put it close on the par 3 9th and get another.

  • Dirty day for two-time Open winner Rob Allenby 77 and will miss cut. #ausopengolf

    Tom Watson finishes at +2 with a -4 round, what a champion. If things stay as they are now he will make the cut.

    Steve Jones misses his birdie putt on the last but manages to record a 4 under par round of 68. Right in contention heading into the weekend

    Ogilvy hits from the sand on 3 and comes up short of the green. Goggin produces a great approach to finish in the centre of the green whilst Senden also comes up short.

    Great chip from Ogilvy to put within a couple if feet. Senden's was nit as good and has a tricky putt.

  • Loving the long, tough par 4s (3rd's a brute) and the strategic, shorter par 5s at The Lakes. Great design = interesting golf #AusOpenGolf

    Senden in the sand on 6. Getting some advice from the rules official before he plays his shot.

    Senden ends up hitting the ball out sideways from the sand. He needs a good approach to avoid bogey.

    A long birdie chance for Spargo on the 9th. He'd love to see this drop to go to 2-under.
