Jason Scrivener and Minwoo Lee lead the Australians at the halfway stage of the Volvo China Open at the Genzon Golf Club in Shenzhen, the West Australians tied in 5th place at 8 under and five shots behind the leader Ashun Wu who is chasing his second national open.

Scrivener has missed his last two cuts after what had been a good run of events earlier in the year but, today, he was bogey free in his round of 6 under.

A truly professional, professional, Scrivener continues to build platforms on the European Tour and his first victory there would appear to be just a matter of time.

Lee, on the other hand, is playing the event on invite and is looking to capitalise on several good finishes in European Tour events early in the season in order to secure more permanent status in Europe.

The 20-year old brother of world number two female golfer, Minjee, is considered by many to be one of Australia’s brightest emerging hopes and this weekend offers the chance to provide further evidence of just that.

Scott Hend is two shots behind Lee and Scrivener in a share of 18th place, Sam Brazel another shot back again, recently crowned NZ Open Champion Zach Murray in 43rd place and Wade Ormsby made the weekend field on the number.
