Nairn's Fraser Fotheringham shot a sub-par second round of 70 to survive the halfway cut with three shots to spare in the New South Wales Amateur golf championship but Scott Borrowman (Dollar), a former Scottish youths champion, missed the cut for his second Australian tournament in a row.
Fotheringam, beaten finalist in the 2007 British boys championship and wintering in the Australian summer sun, has had rounds of 74 and 70 over the Newcastle (par 72) and Muree (par 71) courses for a 36-hole tally of one-over-par 144 and joint 25th place among the 60 qualifiers for the final two rounds at Newcastle.
Australians Reece Hodson (68-68) and Michael Williams (67-69) lead the way on seven-under 136.
Walker Cup Englishman Tommy Fleetwood (Formby Hall) and Matt Haines (Rochester & Cobham) are on 141 and 146 respectively. Fleetwood has scored 72 and 69 to be lying joint 12th. Haines has had rounds of 78 and 68 for a share of 43rd place on 146.
Borrowman, who had an opening round of 83, had a No Return in the second round - or perhaps he withdrew. It is difficult to interpret the information coming out from the New South Wales Golf Association. He certainly didn't make 147 or better to qualify for the last two rounds.
