New Zealand professional golfer Pieter Zwart continues to lead after an impressive seven under par 65 in the round two of the 7th Sheraton Classics 2017 (Pro-am) at Denarau Golf and Racquet Club yesterday.

The inaugural winner of the tournament six years ago is on track as he repeated his seven under par 65 shot on Wednesday to settle for 130.

Fellow Kiwi Kieran Muir (66, 69) who won the Fiji Open last week is on second spot tie with local pro Tomasi Tuivuna who shot total 135 with a similar score.

“The course is easy as there is not much wind in the morning and the better the putt the more scores,” the Nawaikama, Gau native said.

“I have two more rounds to go and hope to shoot three under par to be in good placing.”

The 34-year old said his best shot on the same course was eight under par 66 two years ago during the Koru Cup.

In fourth spot are NZ’s Harry Bateman (66, 70) and 54 year old Glen Joyner (Australia) tied at 136.

In sixth spot with scores of 136 is Ben Williams (72, 66) while Fiji’s Sam Lee is in seventh spot with 140 (69, 71). Tournament organiser Richard Ellis says the tournament has also seen local golfers who have improved a lot since last year.

“The course has been as its best over the last six years and 14 under par after two rounds is an impressive score.”

Competition ends on Saturday.
