NADI'S Baarroon Hussain improved by one shot in the second round of the Australian Master of Amateurs Championship but this was not enough to improve his position on the leader board after 36 holes.

Hussain, playing in his first overseas tournament, scored 16 over par 88 at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club for a total of 177 at the halfway mark remaining at 53rd position.

He made a good start in the second round with even par rounds on the first two holes. The 16-year-old recorded a bogey on the third hole and even par on the fourth hole.

He landed his first birdie on the par three fifth hole. Hussain failed to maintain his consistency after that. He scored three birdies, six bogeys, three double bogeys and a quadruple bogey on the par four 14th hole which tarnished his score card.

National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra said the competition level at this year's Australian Master of Amateurs Championship was high.

"This is the kind of tournament that our players need to participate in regularly in a bid to lift their skill level," Chandra said.

Meanwhile, the Srixon Cleveland Champion versus Championship will get under way at the Pacific Harbour Golf Club tomorrow.
