Kim leads delayed Japan Tour event

Although round two of the Japan Golf Tour's RZ Everlasting KBC Augusta event in Fukuoka has yet to be completed, Korean, Kim Hyung-Sung, leads by four shots over of fellow countrymen Lee Sang-Hee and KT Kwon and Japan's Hiroyuki Fujita.

The winner of the event in 2012, Kim still has four holes of round two remaining when he returns to the Keya Golf Club in Fukuoka on Saturday morning but a fast start to the event when he led after day one had set him up for yet another great week in this event.

More than 50 players are still to complete round two.

The leading Australasian at this stage is New Zealander Michael Hendry who added a second round of 67 to be at 5 under and in a share of 7th position although five shots from the leader.

Kurt Barnes, Adam Bland and former winner, Steve Conran, will all make the cut and are the only Australasians who appear likely to be around for the weekend.
