Two Scots make the weekend action in Australia, but not the Dollar man

Scott Borrowman misses the 'Lake Macquarie'

cut .... but we cannot tell you by how many!

Sorry we can't tell you what Scott Borrowman (Dollar) shot in the second round of the Lake Macquarie tournament at Belmont Golf Club, New South Wales.
All we know is that he did not make the halfway cut figure of 149 or better.
Most golf tournament websites give ALL the second-round scores, but not the Lake Macquarie one.
None of the non-qualifiers' scores is listed. Which is a bit rough on the players concerned, their friends and relatives - not to mention the "folks back home," as far as Scott Borrowman is concerned.
All we do know for certain that the former Scottish youth champion and past Palmer Cup student player had a first-round 73. So we can be sure that he took 77 or more in the second round.
Two Scots have made it through to the weekend action.
South Australia-based Stephen Spiers has had rounds of 70 and 73 for 143 and is tied 14th.
Fraser Fotheringham from Nairn has scored 77 and 72 for 149 and is sharing 71st place.
Leading British player with two rounds to go is Tommy Fleetwood (Formby Hall), the subsequent Walker Cup player who won the Scottish men's open amateur stroke-play championship at Murcar Links last year. He has had a pair of 70s for four-under-par 140 and is sharing eighth place behind the leader, Victorian amateur champion Kieran Pratt (21) with score sof 65 and 71 for 136.
Par 144 (2x72)
Players from Australia unless stated
136 Kieran Pratt 65 71
137 Daniel Bringolf 68 69.
138 Aiden Bare 68 70.
