Griffin on fire in South Korea

Australian Matthew Griffin has a share of the lead after two rounds of the Charity High1 Resort Open in South Korea. Griffin backed up his 67 on Thursday with a solid two-under-par round of 70 at the High1 Resort Country Club. Korean Lee Jun-seok finished his second round strongly with a 67 that drew him level with Griffin. The duo maintains a one-stroke lead over Korea&aposs Kim Bong-jin and Australia&aposs Scott Arnold. Griffin was pleased with the quality of his golf over the first two rounds – but believes with a bit of luck, he could have been outright leader. “It felt really good out there,” Griffin said after his second-round of 70. “I got away to a nice start and made a couple of birdies, and then on the back nine I actually played some of my best golf of the last two days. “I hit some putts that looked good, but just didn&apost go in.” Fellow Aussie Aaron Townsend was tied for fifth, two shots behind Griffin, with other Rohan Blizard and Marcus Cain tied for 13th. Daniel Fox (tied for 18th), Jamie Arnold, David McKenzie (both tied for 27th) and Stephen Dartnall (tied for 34th) have all made the cut and will play the weekend.
