Rod Pampling, full of confidence and self belief following his standout year in the US, has taken the lead through 27 holes of the Australian Open. His front nine today of four under 31, saw him edge ahead of the overnight leader, Kurt Barnes who himself started well with six solid pars and a birdie at the par five 5th to be at seven under and just one back of Pampling.

They have drawn well clear of the current third placed Greg Chalmers who is yet to tee off in round two.

Paul Gow is making a move today and is three under through eight holes to be in outright fourth place at three under. Three of those in fifth position at two under have yet to tee off but the other, Richard Green is two over for the day, through eleven holes.

The conditions remain perfect as we near 11:00am EDST here in Sydney.
