Lee Leads At Moonah Links

Melbourne: Fijian Sam Lee has battled tough conditions at Moonah Links to hold on to a slender lead following the second round of the final stage of ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia Q-School presented by Cobra Puma Golf.

In stark contrast to Tuesday’s hot scoring, the field was tamed by consistent winds for the entirety of the second round, 3-under was the best score of the day shot by Jordan Mullaney, Harrison Endycott and Adam Stephens.

Lee, who started hot in the opening round posting 8-under 64, fought his way to 1-under 71 and holds a one shot lead over the field on 9-under par.

He said the work he’s put in at his home club of Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course in Fiji has paid dividends when it comes to playing in windy conditions.

“It was tough out there today with the wind but coming from Fiji and playing at Natadola I had mentally prepared for this kind of weather,” said Lee.

“It was quite similar out there today to Natadola so I just stuck to my game plan and went pretty good.”

While disappointed with a bogey on the last hole of his round, Lee said he was happy with his overall round and comfortable heading in to today.

“I went in to the left trap on the last hole and made bogey so that was a tough way to finish but I played solid from tee to green.”

Jordan Mullaney is one shot back courtesy of his 3-under 69 to be 8-under the card alone in second position.

Holding on to his score of 7-under the card with an even round today was Victorian amateur Anthony Marchesani who remains in third place.
