Players were greeted to perfect conditions for Round 2 of the 2016 Greg Norman Junior Masters at Palmer Gold Coast yesterday.

A new leader emerged from the 17 years & under division with Lochlan Coleborn (Mt Coolum) firing a tournament best score of four-under 67 for a 36-hole total of 142. Making up from his three-over 75 round yesterday, Coleborn will hold a one-shot advantage over Josh Armstrong (The Lakes) heading into the third round with the 54-hole cut looming.

Overnight joint leader Lisa Edgar (Surfers Paradise) continues her conquest taking an eight-shot lead heading into the third round. Edgar’s nearest rival is Gold Coast District representative Isabelle Taylor with rounds of 77-76 for a 36-hole total of 153.

An eagle finish for Louis Dobbelaar (Brookwater) has seen the QAS Squad member climb the leaderboard in the 15 years & under division with a four-under 67 to hold a two-shot lead from overnight leader Nick Scomazzon (Palmer Sea Reef). After only arriving back in the country early Sunday morning from competing in the Aaron Baddeley International Junior Championship in San Diego USA, Dobbelaar scrapped 10 shots from his first round 77 and is now is prime position for the final two days.

A shuffle in the 15 years & under division saw NSW’s Grace Kim (Avondale) and Belinda Ji (Concord) now atop with a 36-hole total of 147. A double-bogey on the last for Min Kweon (Sanctuary Cove) proved costly sitting two shots adrift.

Yin Kanpai (Hills International) has taken the 36-hole lead in the girls 13 years & under division with brilliant back to back 75’s for a three-shot advantage over Hye Park (RACV Royal Pines).

Joung Chan Park of South Korea shares the lead with Kaito Chiu of Oxley in the boys division with a 36-hole total of 159, with Caerwyn Ross of New Zealand in striking distance a further shot back.

Players now have a rest day on Wednesday before commencing play back at Palmer Gold Coast on Thursday with the 54-hole cut made after the third round. Each of the six divisions will be reduced by 60%, thus the leading 40% of players plus ties in each division, shall participate in the final 18-holes. Also the leading 2 Nett Scores in each Division, if not already qualified, will play in the final 18 holes.

Please note that the 54 hole cut and Gross Championship title for the 13 Years and Under Boy’s and Girl’s category will be determined by the Adjusted Gross Scores
