The second round of the first tournament of the new season of the DP World Tour has also been archived. We are in the land of kangaroos for the first of two weeks in the southern hemisphere for this "opening swing" of the maximum European circuit (in cohabitation with the tournaments played in South Africa).

At the end of the first two days, Min Woo Lee, one of the most respected hosts, is in command of the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship.

Min Woo Lee, results

The Australian golfer is ahead of everyone after 36 holes with a total score of -12.

Lee, after finishing the first round in second position, today confirms himself to be very solid throughout his game and with a -5 result of six birdies and a bogey he takes the lead. We know that when the Australians play in front of their fans they get excited and put in exceptional performances, in second and third place we find two other Aussies.

He is one shot behind the leader Adam Scott (-11), who today achieved a flawless lap of 65. The former Masters champion was the protagonist of an exceptional shot on the par 4 of the 12th reachable with the drive, going very close to the albatross, hitting the hole and the shaft with the tee shot after an incredible bounce at the start of the green.

Third place for John Lyras, at-10, the fairytale of this tournament being number 763 in the OWGR. After the three hosts there is a two-shot jump to find the trio in fourth position. In fact, at -8 there are two other Australians, Curtis Luck and Lucas Herbert, and the Spaniard Joel Moscatel who, after being in the lead at the end of the first day, today did not go beyond a round of close par.

On the par 71 course of the Royal Queensland Golf Club in Brisbane (Queensland, Australia) in seventh position with a score of -7 are the couple Rikuya Hoshino and Cameron John, while a group of golfers close the top-10 with -9 of the highest level: Cameron Davis, Rafa Cabrera Bello, David Micheluzzi, Austin Bautista and Andrew Kelly.

Great day for Pietro Bovari who, with a wonderful 68 after yesterday's 72, recovered 53 positions and easily passed the cut, climbing to 38th place with a total of -2 and the prospect of moving up again during the weekend.

The young Italian started from the 10th where he found the first and only bogey of the day, after nine consecutive pars Bovari went wild in his last eight holes scoring four birdies. The Milanese born in 2001, who came close to making the cut in the recent Q School, is the second cut he has made in his career on the DP World Tour and must use these weeks to gain experience and try to achieve a great result.
