Ben Campbell from New Zealand leads the Fiji International after 36 holes at Natadola Bay Golf Course in Fiji.
Ben carded a second round -6 under par 66 to lead the Fiji International after 36 holes with a -11 under par tournament total, with chipping and putting being the key;
“I think it was one of the first times I’ve ever played it in these kind of conditions.”
“So the game plan actually changed a little bit.”
“I’ve never really played it like that, it was in the total opposite direction.”
“There was a couple holes hitting two iron instead of hitting driver and a few things like that, and vice versa.”
“I just chipped and putted. When I miss the green, I always seem to get up and down, which keeps the momentum going, so I think that’s a big key.”
“These greens are so good this week. I think I struggled a little bit up in Asia with the grain, getting used to chipping and putting on the grain.”
“So it’s great this week, there’s none of that. I just feel a bit more comfortable.”
In second place is Andrew Dodt, Australia, at -7 under par, a second round -2 under 70 leaves him four shots behind the leader.
Terry Pilkadaris, -4 under par 68 today, and Jarryd Felton, -1 under 71, both from Australia, share third place at -6 under par for the tournament.
