Rhodes on the move at Royal Melbourne

RM Seniors Classic Rd 2
Greg Rhodes (Coomealla)

Greg Rhodes of Coomealla has taken the lead after round 2 of the Royal Melbourne Senior Classic and will be looking to defend his title heading into the final round tomorrow. Moving across to the East Course today saw a significant improvement in the overall scores of the field as players adjusted to the fast paced putting surfaces.

With temperatures projected to reach the high 30s, the players were grateful for the cloud cover that provided some relief from the harsh sun rays. However, high humidity levels still made the round a physical challenge for the field.

Rhodes carded 3 birdies today on holes 1, 3 and 17 to post a score of one over par 72 for 36-hole total of 150 to jump ahead of round 1 leader John Davey from Tea Tree Gully (SA). Davey is trailing Rhodes by three shots, and sits just one shot clear of Wyong (NSW) member David McClelland who enjoyed a solid round of 73 today.

Following a nett round of 69 today, McClelland has now shot into the lead in the nett section with a total of nett 146. Three shots back is Royal Melbourne member Michael Brash who put his local knowledge to use, carding a nett 73 today and is now two shots clear of The National’s John Wheeler.

Players will now enjoy an afternoon off before the third and final round commences tomorrow morning at 8am on the West Course.
