The afternoon field in the second round of the New Zealand PGA Championship at Clearwater today was battling the wretched weather - strong wind and rain - and only three golfers were under par, all of them one-under. Australian Ashley Hall and Canterbury's Anthony Doyle , both of who shot three-under 69s in the morning, seem certain to be the leading duo after 36 holes at seven-under and four-under, respectively. Another Canterbury professional, Mathew Holten, who was tied second overnight at five-under had dropped three shots in his first six holes but still had a share of third place on three-under.

United States-based New Zealand professional Grant Waite was also hanging tough, being one-over through 12 holes (11 pars, one bogey) and in a tie for eighth at two-under. Defending champion Steve Alker was three-over for his round through 12 holes and one-over for the championship.

The cut, which looked likely to be one-over early today, is expected to be at three-over par.
