In the second round of the Isuzu Queensland Open, New Zealanders Kieran Muir and Ryan Chisnall saw their way on the leaderboard, while Daniel Fox flew to the Brisbane Golf Club on an equal footing.
After a frustrating opening round, Muir ended today with a round 3-under 68 to share the lead of the clubhouse at 4-under the card.
"It was a bit easier than yesterday afternoon, there was not much wind and I played a lot better today," Muir said.
"I had a hard time hitting my ball in the first round, so I spent a bit of time on the range and then felt much better today, I hit it nicely and that's why I just had the only bogey, I never got into trouble. "
Muir was joined by Michael Wright, Blake Windred, Antonio Murdaca and Charlie Dann on four-under the card.
Chisnall was on his way to a great round before a late bogey on the 17th saw him finish with 4-under 67 to sit 3-under under the card.
"It was pretty solid, I'm very happy with that round, the wind picked up and I leaked a few shots, but in general I'm pretty happy," Chisnall said.
The first-year professional was impeccable through 12 holes and reached 6-under at a certain point before a few loose shots crept inside.
"It was nice to see the ball rolling and to go to the front-9 after a slow start yesterday", added Chisnall.
"It can be a bit more difficult for the boys this afternoon, so I think I'll be there tomorrow."
The round of the morning belonged to Western Australia and the 2018 Coca-Cola Queensland PGA champion Daniel Fox who admitted that his form was bad.
The current round of 6-under-65 was a surprise, but created some confidence in the two-time ISPS HANDA PGA Tour or Australasia champion.
"I am shocked more than anything else, I had a terrible day yesterday that I played badly and my posture was worse, I did my best not to break yesterday, I was so frustrated and it has been so for months and months. , "said Fox, who of course reached a record and pushed him safely within the line of 2 near the card.
"So I did not do what I normally do, go to the pub and have a few beers to make myself feel better, I went out and practiced a few hours later on the assortment and, more importantly, some practice with the
"I managed to find something on both sides and my moves were unbelievable today, I rolled in some of the greens and some putts that I have not even been around in the past."
The highlight of the morning, however, was the Victorian professional Ryan Woodward who hit his first hole-in-one for the tournament, the third since he started golfing, on the par-3 7th from 128 meters with his 8-iron.
The afternoon field is now on track.
