Duncan and Yoon in charge at Junior Vic Open

Tyler Duncan (QLD) during his 64 at the Junior Vic Open

Tyler Duncan has distanced himself from the field at the halfway point of the Junior Victorian Open, producing a magnificent 64 on the creek course at 13th Beach.

In almost perfect playing conditions, players returned some outstanding scores on the stunning links courses along the Southern Ocean.

Duncan’s round included 8 birdies and no bogeys and he now takes a three-shot lead heading into the third round tomorrow.

Commonwealth’s Daniel Gill will be trying to chase down the Queenslander over the next two days, as he sits three back on seven-under after his 68 at Barwon Heads today.

Nathan Page (The National) finished with a 69 in today’s round on the beach course to take the overall lead in the under 16 boys’ section.

Abel Eduard (Kew) and Harry Adams (Wonthaggi) are trailing closely behind, both one-over-par after their two rounds.

New Caledonia’s Hugo Koch has taken the lead in the under 14 boys section with rounds of 79 and 75 giving him a three shot buffer over Shepparton’s Bailey Goodall.

Min-A Yoon is making her trip down under worthwhile as she takes a commanding lead at the halfway point.

The 15-year-old Korean fired a magnificent four-under-par 68 on the creek course to lead the overall girls and under 16 girls sections by three shots.

Yoon, fresh off her victory at the Port Phillip only two weeks ago, will be looking to book her spot in the 2019 ISPS Handa Victorian Open.

Jeneath Wong (The Metropolitan) is the next best after her terrific round of 69 at the difficult Barwon Heads layout.

In the under 14 girls section, Mt Derimut’s Louise Baliton finished with 87 in today’s round to take a 3 shot lead in her section.

Players will take on their final course tomorrow before the final day at Barwon Heads on Thursday.
