Todd Sinnott retained his share of the lead as the Final Stage of Asian Tour qualifying reached the halfway mark at the Suvarnabhumi Golf & Country Club, in Bangkok, the Victorian golfer adding a second round of 65 to his opening 64 to be at 15 under and tied at the top with recently turned professional Junya Kamashero of Japan and Sinnott’s fellow Victorian Richard Green.

"I didn’t perform as well as I would like to in my last few events in Australia," said Sinnott. "So I had a little break over Christmas and I feel refreshed and I’m enjoying my golf now which is nice. I’m just trying to stay as relaxed as possible and the last two rounds are probably the finest I’ve had in a while."

Green is keen on securing the medallist honours this week. "I had a nice couple of days and I’ve been hitting it good and putting nicely. I hope to keep it going. It’s a foot into the door and that’s what you always aim to do each time you play. I need to work hard again tomorrow and keep putting myself into position. I try to keep myself where I am and try to finish off the week in the number one spot."

New South Wales amateur Austin Bautista is the next best of the Australians in a share of 39th with Jack Wilson and Nathan Millar in 48th position.

The leading 35 players and ties will secure their Asian Tour cards for 2017.
