Herbert leads Australian Open with Day poised

Herbert leads Australian Open with Day poised

Young local Cameron Davis upstaged Jordan Spieth and Jason Day by shooting an eight-under-par 63 in benign morning conditions for a two-shot lead after the first round of the Australian Open yesterday.

Day is breathing down the neck of halfway leader Lucas Herbert after wowing fans with four-straight back-nine birdies en route to a second-round three-under-par 68 on Friday.

With a seven-stroke advantage over Spieth, Day is now a strong favourite to win the Stonehaven Cup but he said he fully expected the American to claw his way back into contention.

"But the more I'm getting them on course the better, and we'll go forward and try and shoot a low round".

That left the Australian just one stroke behind outright leader Lucas Herbert, who made the most of his early tee-off time and carded a 66.

Policy on EVs for Telangana likely in December
Ranjan said Mahindra was also likely to produce EVs at its Zaheerabad plant in the State once the market for the vehicles grows. "The policy has three components -for manufacturers, users and support mechanisms", the principal secretary said.

The 22-year-old capitalised on favourable conditions at a course where he won the Australian Amateur two years ago, birdying six of the first seven holes and dropping just the one shot at the ninth.

"On this golf course more than just about any that we play, I feel like you can make up more ground and come from behind here over I think any tournament I've played this entire year", he said.

"So I'll have a pretty gettable golf course I imagine in the morning tomorrow with the guys really having to watch themselves in the afternoon and if I can post something like five, six-under, then I'm very much in this tournament". His second-round 71 leaves the world number two and three-time major victor 1-under, eight adrift of Herbert.

"If he (Spieth) gets something going on the weekend, he can hole a lot of putts and make a lot of birdies and make a charge", Day said.

While wary of Smith and Jones and certainly not discounting a weekend charge from Spieth, Day believes he, Herbert and Davis are in position to take command on Saturday.
