Australian Open scoring back on track
BY Bruce Young | Australasian PGA Tour | 2007 Australian Open | Round Two | 14 Dec 2007
After a day which many would prefer to forget, Golf Australia late yesterday made the decision to replace the scoring system they introduced for this year’s Australian Open and have gone back to the tried and proven system provided by Menmac Services.
There was a collective sigh of relief by those arriving at the Media Centre early in the day as they realised the system they had come to know and trust would be back in action.
In brilliant weather, play got under way in round two at 7.30 and the pre-tournament favourite, Aaron Baddeley, was one of the first to make a move. Baddeley picked up two early birdies to move to 4 under and within three of first round leader Williamson, who is due to tee off at 9.15.
West Australian Kim Felton birdied his third hole to move to 6 under and within one while Brisbane golfer, Wayne Perske, who has played on the Japan Golf Tour this year was also doing well, his birdie at the first taking him into the group at 4 under.
