View results for boys from Round 2 for boys
With only one crown but plenty of opportunists, the #AusJnr boys final will be electric tomorrow.
Harrison Crowe and Kazuma Kobori are two of the many names at the pointed end of the rankings and share first place in fourth place after two rounds at the Southport Golf Club.
But with 36 holes still between the final champion and the trophy, history has shown that anything can happen.
Crowe, a member of the St Michael & # 39; s Golf Club, started the day seven shots back, but the hot putter quickly made his chances.
"My putting was the difference (between the two days)," he said after the round.
"I struggled yesterday and hit many good putts all day long. I was very patient today and some of them fell. I didn't really make many mistakes (today)."
Last month's NZ PGA champion Kobori had a tumultuous day with an opening eagle and a heartbreaking triple bogey.
"Well, I kicked it off the tee, thought it hit the tree and fell down," Kobori describes about his seven.
"Then I hit a distance ball about 10 feet from my real ball. I walked forward and realized that I hit the wrong ball. Walked back and hit my real ball.
"The decision was to continue playing the ball (the original ball when it was found) with a penalty of two penalty points. I then hacked it on the fairway, because the ball was actually embedded, up to 10ft was hit and missed.
"And so I made a triple."
But even a general penalty did not stop Kobori from regaining calm and taking a share in the lead.
"I was pretty mad at myself, but I knew it had nothing to do with my game. I knew I was still playing well and I knew I could still make birdies and come back."
Southport product Elvis Smylie used his knowledge of the home course to shoot a three under opening nine. However, Elvis briefly left "behind the building" at the back nine stumbling with back-to-back bogies at 10 and 11.
True to the king, Smylie returned with a little bird at 17 to finish two for the day and get the last place in tomorrow's top group.
& # 39; Night leader Jordan Jung, of Mount Lawley in Western Australia, struggled early in his afternoon round with a double and two bogies in his opening four holes.
The WA government representative returned a three-over-par 74 but remains at a striking distance after his opening six under lap.
Queensland duo Tyler Duncan and Bailey Arnott were shot back at two more times.
In addition to winning the national youth title previously held by Jason Day, Adam Scott and Cameron Smith – all who will compete against this week's masters – the exceptions to the gentlemen Australian Open and IMG Academy Junior World Championships are at stake .
The cut was set to +9 with 66 players who went to the final with tomorrow 36 holes. The game starts at 6.40 a.m. (AEST) at the Southport Golf Club.
