Jordan Loof handled the brutal conditions at Muriwai Links today with a brilliant round of 69 moving him into a tie for the lead with Ryan Chisnall. Both players are at 9 under par and lead by three from Gulf Harbour amateur James Hydes on 6 under and the well performed Josh Geary a further stroke back on 5 under. Mike Hendry is in 5th place on 4 under and Nick Loach moved into contention with a very impressive round of 69. The weather is expected to be more of the same for tomorrow which should provide a very exciting finale to the Autex Muriwai Open.
