Brewer storms to lead at The National

<image="1" align="right" />

Kenneth Brewer of Lynwood GC (NSW) has stormed to the lead at the 36-hole mark of The National Senior Masters.

Players were greeted with beautifully still conditions on the Old Course today and were treated to picturesque views of Bass Strait cutting into the undulating slopes of the par 72 landscape.

Brewer fired five birdies on his way to a four-under-par 68 and now sits at one-under for the tournament.

Darryl Whitehead (Royal Canberra) is five shots back in second place and will be looking to bridge the gap tomorrow.

Rounding out the final group for tomorrow are McLeod GC member Tim Deakin (QLD) and Gordon Claney (Kingston Heath) who both sit a further shot back in a tie for third.

The nett championship sees a four-way tie at the top with Kenneth Brewer, Tim Deakin, Geoffrey Beck (Victor Harbor) and David McMillan (Dunheved) all currently at nett 141.

The championship field cut was made at 164 (+20) for the top 75 gross scores plus ties, with the remainder of the 100 person field consisting of the next best nett players (cut at nett 157 on a count-back).

Players will complete the final round on the Old Course tomorrow and will commence at 8:00am, with the consolation field visiting the Moonah Course once again.
