The two young stars of Australian golf are tearing up the course early on day two at the $1 million Australian PGA in Queensland. Aaron Baddeley, who began his round off the 10th tee, has fired seven birdies and a bogey to move into the lead at -11 after 14 holes.

Baddeley posted three birdies and a bogey on his first nine holes and then turned the corner to fire off another four on the first five holes of his second nine. The course record currently stands at -9 (63) and with four holes to play it could well be broken.

Queenslander Adam Le Vesconte is hot on the heels of Baddeley at -9 after shooting five birdies in a bogey-free 11 holes today. West Australian, Nick O’Hern is part of a group of three players including Peter Lonard and Jarrod Moseley at -7 with O’Hern the only player in the group to have started their round. O’Hern is -5 for the day after 15 holes.

Queenslander and European Tour regular, Adam Scott is also closing in on Baddeley. Scott is six under for the round after 14 holes and has done well to make up for his first round of 72, which had left him seven strokes from the pace at the start of day two.
