It was a complicated second round that the pupil of Guillaume Biaugeaud performed, in the par. Then 9th in the first lap at -4, he now points to 50th position with a returned card of 75 (+4). The French player made 3 birdies, 3 bogeys and 2 double bogeys.
At the end of this second round, the Australian Jason Scrivener imposes himself as the only leader at -10, one stroke ahead of his compatriot Cameron Smith (at -9). Jason Scrivener went clear with 4 birdies: “The two days were quite different. Yesterday I had no stress and I hit the ball very well from tee to green. Today was a bit more difficult, I did some splits. Overall, I’m pretty happy with my run. »
World No. 3, Cameron Smith, doubled his score from the first day by performing -6. He made 8 birdies and 2 bogeys. From now on, he is therefore hot on the heels of the leader by being in 2nd position: “The day was pretty good. I only had two bogeys, both on par threes, which isn’t exactly a good sign most of the time, but felt like I was hitting my driver like I hadn’t for a very long time, so it was good to do it. It gives me some confidence for the weekend. »
The defending champion, Jediah Morgan, had a complicated day with a card returned of 74 (+3). He is in 78th position at +2 above the cut. His predecessor Adam Scott is 17th at -4 while Greg Chalmers is 33rd at -2.
