His second round of 72 places him two strokes behind and in second position. It also sets up a show down between he and Australian Senior Amateur Champion, Stefan Albinski (Mona Vale) who sits on 144 after rounds of 71 and 73. Rounding out the top four are Rodney Dale (147) and Richard Greville (149). The afternoon s round was significantly affected by the heavy rains which somehow stayed away from the morning field.
