Australian Masters Golf: Poulter lines up for a weekend charge

QUEENSLANDER Matthew Guyatt maintained his lead at the midway point of the Australian Masters, but tournament drawcards Adam Scott and Ian Poulter remained close enough to make a weekend charge.

Guyatt added a three-under 69 to his 65 on the opening day and is ten-under for the tournament, two shots clear of New Zealand’s Michael Hendry, with Scott a further stroke adrift in third. Englishman Poulter is another two shots back at minus five and shares fourth with Tasmanian Craig Hancock.

Fellow European Graeme McDowell couldn’t take advantage of a superb eagle-birdie start to the day and eventually signed for a 77.
