Australian Amateur Championship - Day 2

 

Tyler Duncan has returned a second round of 1 under par at Brisbane GC but has slipped into a tie for 24th place. However, this will qualify him for the matchplay commencing tomorrow (16/1).

Unfortunately, David Fahey has a DQ beside his round for today. Disappointing after recording an albatross 2 on the par 5 seventh hole.

Kirsty Hodgkins returned a 3 under par 69 to jump into a three-way tie for 6th position and obvious qualification for the matchplay.

All the best to our qualifiers.
