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.

Gaganjeet carded a third round -3 under par 69 to top the Fiji International leaderboard with a -8 under par total after 54 holes in windy conditions.

Gaganjeet was able to convert some tricky putts today;

“I had a great start to the day.”

“I started with two good birdies and then I kept on hitting the ball really well and the ball was in play throughout the round.”

“I think today my striking was really, really good. Despite the windy conditions, I kept the ball in play and actually I holed a lot of really tricky putts today.”

“I think all the good rounds, good scores which I’ve been producing over the period of two months is going to definitely help me subconsciously.”

“Golf is a crazy game, anything could happen.”

Four players from Australia are tied in second place, one shot back at -7 under par; Andrew Dodt, even par 72 today, Jarryd Felton, -1 under 71, Jake McLeod, -2 under and Terry Pilkadaris, -1 under par 71.

Tournament leader at the start of the day, Ben Campbell from New Zealand, sadly carded three bogey’s in his last three holes, signing for a +5 over 77, to fall back to sixth place at -6 under.
