Day one leaders Dylan Fisher and Matt Rennex are still ahead, but saw their lead shrink on day two of the Plumbtec Two Golden Pairs tournament at Numurkah.By Matthew Galea
Australian representative Dylan Fisher and Victorian representative Matt Rennex saw their lead cut on the second day of play at the Plumbtec Two Golden Pairs tournament.
The duo still boasts a lead of 13 shots heading into the third and final day of action, but Brett Foley and John Hurst enjoyed a fine day at the greens to move up the rankings from third to second.
Todd Simmonds and Brad Peck are well behind in third (73), while Ian Johnson and Neil Welsh sit in fourth (69).
All four have won six games from six, with another two teams also having achieved the same feat, although they are lagging behind on shots.
Fisher, who enjoyed a winning stint representing Australia in South Australia at the Six Nations international tournament last year, said it was always pleasing to come back to Numurkah.
‘‘I think this is my fourth of fifth year here, and I really like the atmosphere,’’ Fisher said.
‘‘Everyone just has a good time.
‘‘We’re going well at the moment, but tomorrow’s another day and the team that’s chasing us is right behind us, so anything can happen.’’
Fisher said he had played with Rennex every time he had competed in the tournament, with the duo having claimed a win at the tournament in years past.
‘‘We won it two or three years ago,’’ Fisher said.
‘‘Matt and I have known each other since we were 14 or so, because we played juniors together.’’
Despite the threat of rain tomorrow, tournament organiser and sponsor Bruce Agnew was confident the tournament would be completed.
‘‘We’ll get through it,’’ Agnew said.
‘‘Crowds were good again today, so hopefully it’s a good final day.’’
The final day of action gets underway at 9.30
