ISPS Handa Vic Open R2

Robin Sciot-Siegrist leads by two in Australia

February 06-09
13th Beach GC, Geelong, Victoria, Australia
AU$1,600,000
Round 1, Round 3, Round 4


Robin Sciot-Siegrist will take a two-shot lead into the weekend at the ISPS Handa Vic Open after carding a 64 on day two.

The French European Tour rookie was blemish-free over the Creek Course at 13th Beach Golf Club to move to 14 under and lead the way from Australian Travis Smyth.

Home favourites dominated the upper reaches of the leaderboard, with amateur Jed Morgan, Matthew Griffin, Min Woo Lee and Jake McLeod all at 11 under.

Sciot-Siegrist led by three at one point after birdies on the 10th, 11th, 14th, 17th, first, second fifth and seventh but Smyth trimmed his advantage.


“It was a great round,” the leader told europeantour.com. “It was similar to yesterday, I played really good golf and putted really well. Overall just a very nice round and everything is going great.

“In general, I don’t have many expectations. I’m just trying to do my job, like really do what I need to do on the course and during practice rounds and everything. When I’m playing, obviously there’s pressure and everything, but I’m just trying to do my best and we’ll see at the end.”

Northern Ireland’s Jonathan Caldwell was in the group at 10 under alongside 2006 US Open champion Geoff Ogilvy, two shots ahead of England’s Ashley Chesters.

Defending champion David Law missed the cut by one shot after the Scot signed for rounds of 68 and 72.

In the women’s event, Swede Madelene Sagstrom fired a 67 to lead the way at 13 under, one shot clear of America’s Ally McDonald.
