Six players sit tied at the top of the leaderboard at the halfway mark of the Ian Weigh Toyota Rockhampton Pro-Am as the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series competition heats up in Queensland.
Ben Clementson, Julian Sinardi, Matt Millar, Darren Beck, Jack Munro, and reigning champion Jacob Boyce are locked on 10-under par totals with two rounds still to play.
Ben Clementson shot the equal low score of the day a 6-under 66 to move into contention, his round consisting of a 33 front-9 and a 33-back-9.
Three-time runner-up in this event, Matthew Millar, fired a solid round of 4-under 68 however missed a chance for the outright lead after finishing his round on the par-3 9th hole, with a bogey.
“I got off to a slow start,” said Millar. “Then I got things going mid way through the round courtesy of some good putting.
“I was disappointed with my finish on the 9th hole, I hit a poor shot off the tee missing the green and then didn’t make the up and down to save par.”
“I feel that my game is really close but I’m just making some basic errors out there.”
Jacob Boyce shot a round of 2-under par 70 to stay among the leaders.
“I didn’t hit the ball well today,” said Boyce. “I only hit two fairways for the day but putted really well which saved me.”
The next best placed professionals are Luke Paroz and Andrew Martin sitting on 9-under 135 two-round total.
The third round of the Ian Weigh Toyota Rockhampton Pro-Am tees off tomorrow morning at 6.40am with the leading players on course from 11.30am.
