Defending Champion Cameron put together a second round -7 under par 65 to take control of the Australian PGA Championship taking a one shot lead into the week-end at -9 under par, after some extra putting practice;
“It was good, I thought I struck it nicely yesterday and the putts weren’t quite going in.”
“I just didn’t quite have the speed yesterday.”
“I did a little bit of extra work this morning on the green and it paid off. I was actually getting putts to the hole today, which is nice.”
“I was just trying to do my best. I decided I wanted to get to ten, that was kind of my goal before Friday’s end, so one off is not too bad. Seven under, you can never complain about seven under.”
Sharing second place at -8 under par are Marc Leishman, -4 under 68 today, Jake McLeod, and Matt Jager, both with second rounds of -2 under 70, all three from Australia.
