Australians Dominating Fiji International 16 Aug 2014
The first 7 flags currently on the leaderboard in the Fiji International at Natadola Bay are all Australian, followed by New Zealander David Smail who has made a huge move forward in Round 3 to be -5 through 10, and -2 for the tournament, four shots off the lead.
Given the windy conditions, and a course where birdies and big numbers are equally probable, a fascinating day lies ahead. Seven NZers made the cut, but apart from Smail only Ryan Fox is currently in red numbers at -1 for the tournament. Follow the action on www.oneasia.asia
In New York, Lydia Ko also made a forward move to lie T4 on -5 after two rounds, four shots behind leader Brittany Lincicome.
Danny Lee's 2nd round of 70 in the Wynham Championship was not good enough to make the cut: he will be hoping his best form lies ahead in the next few weeks as he moves into the FedEx playoff series, alongside Tim Wilkinson.
