- In-form Australian Marc Leishman fired seven-under-par 65 to storm to a share of the lead of the Australian PGA on the Gold Coast. Leishman, who this week won the Greg Norman Medal for the Australian golfer of the year, started the second round one shot behind overnight leaders Adam Bland and Jordan Zunic. But his sizzling second round ensured he would finish the day at 12 under par alongside Bland, who fired a second consecutive six-under 66 at par-72 Royal Pines. Two-time champion Greg Chalmers was two shots further back on 10 under, one ahead of Zunic, Cameron Smith and Rhein Gibson.
