Peter Lonard has stayed within touch of the lead at the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship in Benton Harbour in Michigan, a second round of 71 leaving him just three behind the joint leaders Kevin Sutherland and Scott McCarron.

Sharing the lead into day two of the PGA Tour Champions second major of the year, Lonard birdied his opening hole of round two but bogeys at his 10th and 13th holes threatened to derail his day before a birdie at the 15th saw him finish with a round of even par.

Having played early on day two he was at that point in a share of 6th place but by the time play finished he had slipped to 10th but still only three from the lead.  

Peter Fowler and David McKenzie were the other two Australians to make the cut both finishing in a share of 57th place at even par and eight shots from the lead in what is a congested leaderboard.

Glenn Joyner and New Zealanders Mark Brown and Greg Turner were other Australasians to play the event but missed the cut.
