Leaders off to a shaky start at Australian Open
BY Bruce Young | Australasian PGA Tour | 2004 Australian Open | Final Round | 28 Nov 2004
The leaders in the 2004 Hillross Australian Open have just hit off in their final rounds and with a bogey at his very first hole, Rod Pampling briefly slipped back into a share of the lead with his playing partner Richard Green who parred the first hole. At the very next hole however, Green found the bunker with his tee shot and took bogey.
The hot man on the golf course today is the Victorian Alistair Presnell who is four under through nine holes and at one under for the tournament, he now finds himself just three shots behind the leaders. Presnell played in Asia this year finishing 55th on their money list while playing fourteen events.
Paul Gow and Kurt Barnes are just two behind Pampling, with Presnell and Stephen Leaney at one under.
