Day Two LIVE: Sim setting the Standard

Day Two LIVE: Sim setting the Standard

West Australian Michael Sim holds a two-shot lead heading into the final stages of the second round of the Golf Challenge NSW Open at Concord.

Sim, 36, is a three-time winner on the Nationwide Tour and widely regarded as one of Australia’s most talented players, has been flawless in his second round, posting six birdies through 15 holes to hold a slender lead over Picton’s Justin Warren (-10) as the cut line looms over the field.

Straight out of the gate with three birdies in a row, Sim then birdied holes eight and nine to make the turn in 30, and then quickly added another at 13. He is currently sic-under for his round with just two holes to play.

The cut line is hovering at -2 as players finish up their second rounds.

1.30 pm: In Justin we trust as Warren sets the pace

It has been eight long years since Aron Price lifted the Kel Nagle Cup, the last time a New South Welshman won his home state’s major golf open.

That drought may break again this weekend with a swag of Sydneysiders all in contention midway through the second round of the Golf Challenge NSW Open at Concord.

Jack Thompson grabbed a share of the lead during the second round.

11.40 am: Hungry Jack hits the lead

In just his third start as a professional young gun Jack Thompson finds himself amongst the leaders once again.

The South Australian Wizz kid, who opened the tournament with a five-under 66, has continued his excellent form with four under front nine ( 31) to be equal leader mid-way through the morning half of the draw here at Concord.

10.20 am: Queenslander Kennedy shows his class

Queenslander Brad Kennedy is taking advantage of his years of experience and perfect conditions to be leading midway through the second round of the Golf Challenge NSW Open here at Concord Golf Club in Sydney.

Kennedy, 46, had four birdies on his outward nine to be at nine-under for the tournament and two shots ahead of Jack Thompson and Chris Wood, while overnight leader Blake Windred has dropped two shots to fall to -5 as players start the turn.

Whilst experience is everything in golf, it’s the amateurs also setting the challenge, with Harrison Crowe who followed up first-round 68 with a three-under front nine (starting from 10) to be at  six-under for the tournament.

Fellow amateur Harry Bolton, playing with Windred, has the round of the morning in his hands so far, a five-under-par front nine (out in 30) to be at five-under for the tournament.

Speaking of veterans, Matthew Millar is also showing his experience with a three-under front nine (starting from 10) to be at four-under and within striking distance. 

It’s a stunning day here at Concord.
