Click to follow
The qualifier Nick O'Hern, forced to carry his own bag during the first round, was the unexpected leader after the second round of the Australian Open in Melbourne. After hastily enlisting his wife, Alana, as a caddie, the West Australian shot a six-under-par 66 to finish the day 11-under on 133.

Britain's Lee Westwood also shot 66 to finish the day one stroke off the pace, while the world No 1, Greg Norman, fired a 67 for 135.

The overnight leader, Peter Lonard, endured a miserable day to finish seven shots off the pace. The Australian Masters champion shot a 77 to follow his course record 63 on the opening day.
