Daniel Nesbitt tears off a tee shot on Magenta Shores.

It was moving day with the Australian Mid-Amateur at Magenta Shores Golf and Country Club today – and no one moved more than Daniel Nesbitt.

Nesbitt was fantastic on the majestic New South Wales Central Coast left, finishing in style with an eagle to vault 10 places on the leaderboard to share the lead in fourth after the second of three rounds.

Nesbitt bought a fine 71 to join New South Welshman Christopher Campbell and Adam Hawkins of Queensland at the top of the rankings.

Nesbitt, from The Links Shell Cove Golf Club, has also carded two birdies, thirteen pars and two bogeys for his one-under-par total.

Campbell, from Port Kembla, and Palm Meadows golfer Hawkins were inseparable for a second consecutive day, three-over-par rounds of 75.

James Swanson of the Shelly Beach Golf Club in New South Wales is handy in the fourth to five after a second round 73.

Royal Canberra's Craig Whitehead and Stephen Carroll, from Massey Park, finished the top five with six.

Nocturnal leader and defending champion, Dale Clarke, from New Zealand, struggled in the second round with a return of a seven out of 79 to finish right in seventh.

In the meantime, Olivia Wilson of the New South Wales Golf Club was in charge of the accompanying women's event.

Wilson shot a fine of 75 to lead her closest rival, Adele Douglas of Bonville, with six strokes.

Wilson has carded four birdies, ten pars, two bogeys, a double-bogey and a triple-bogey for her three-over-par total after he was square with the card with only two to play.

Douglas returned an 82 to go with her first round 83 and is in second place.

Cathy Stolz from Shelly Beach is placed third with Sharon Thompson from Avondale and Candice High respectively fourth and fifth from Royal Fremantle.
