Michael Sim finds form
BY Bruce Young | Web.com Tour | 2012 Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational | Round Two | 28 Jul 2012
Plagued by injury and a subsequent loss of form, Australian golfer Michael Sim has finally shown a glimpse of what he is capable of with a second round of 66 at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational in Columbus in Ohio and at the halfway mark is in a share of 5th position.
52 players are required to complete their rounds on Sunday morning however but the improved showing is a great tonic for Sim, the 27 year old missing his last seven cuts after being hindered by various injuries in the past eighteen months or so.
The four time winner on the Web.com Tour missed some of last year through injury but even when he did play it was a struggle. There was hope that he would earn a medical exemption for the PGA Tour in 2012 but it was not to be.
Sim played the PGA Tour in 2010 and 2011 after setting a record money winning season in 2009 on the then Nationwide Tour.
The weather has impacted on play at the University of Ohio layout and 51 players are required to finish their rounds on Sunday morning.
Stephen Allan is also in a share of 5th position with Sim although he still has three holes of the demanding Scarlet course layout to play.
The leader is American Trevor Murphy who will be required to complete seven holes of his second round tomorrow. Murphy leads over Casey Wittenberg, Ben Kohles and Joseph Tramlett.
Aron Price is in 15th position and Cameron Percy 24th.
