Sydney’s Cameron Davis is just two from the halfway lead at the PGA Tour’s Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit in Michigan, consecutive rounds of 68 having the 26-year-old former Australian Open and Australian Amateur champion in a share of 6th place.

Davis has struggled in recent months to produce the sort of form which saw him record his best PGA Tour finish to date when 3rd in the American Express tournament early in the year but he appears to have things heading in the right direction again having recorded 12 birdies in his opening 36 holes.

Davis is in his third season on the PGA Tour having graduated there from the Korn Ferry Tour in 2018. He gives regular signs that the precocious talent he displayed when winning the Australian Open in late 2017 is about to yield big results and that his powerful game is geared for this tour.

Davis trails England’s Tom Lewis and Chile’s Joacquin Niemann who share the lead at 10 under.

Davis’ fellow Australians, Aaron Baddeley and Matt Jones, are 34th while Jason Day, who opened with a solid 67 on day one, could only add a round of 73 today to be 46th, with Cameron Percy 46th.
