BY iseekgolf.com | Asian Tour | 2004 Asian Tour Q-School - Stage One | Round Two | 09 Jan 2004
Australian Richard Moir fired a superb eight-under-par 64 to open up a seven shot lead after the second round of the Asian PGA Qualifying School, Stage One.
Moir has a two-day total of 14-under-par 130 and comfortably leads overnight leader Jason Moon, also from Australia. Moon, who carded a 64 on Wednesday, failed to keep his foot on the pedal, settling for an even par 72.
Korea’s Choi Jin-ho, Taiwan’s Hsieh Tung-shu, Barry Austin of England and Australian Malcolm Baker share third place on 139. England’s Sam Walker and Kotaro Asahara were a further shot back after shooting rounds of 71 and 70 respectively.
A total of 148 players made the halfway cut where they will proceed into the last two rounds where the top-40 finishers and ties will then qualify for the all-important Final Stage next week.
The Final Stage, to be staged also at Palm Resort, will see the top 40 finishers and ties earning playing privileges on the Asian PGA Tour.
