Scott hits the front in Queensland
Home favourite takes a two shot lead at midway stage
Adam Scott leads by two shots at the Australian PGA Championship
Adam Scott claimed the lead at the Australian PGA Championship after carding a second round of four-under 67 at Royal Pines.
The home favourite took a two-shot advantage at 10-under overall on the Gold Coast, with countryman David McKenzie his closest rival at eight under at the midway point of the joint PGA Tour of Australasia/OneAsia Tour tournament.
Main attraction Scott went bogey-free for his second round, picking up shots at the fourth and 11th holes, before claiming an eagle at 12.
McKenzie mixed four birdies with two bogeys to card a two-under 69 to remain in the hunt for the Joe Kirkwood Cup.
American Rickie Fowler remains the best hope of the internationals, but lost the lead on Friday as he battled his way to a one-over 72.
Three-time champion Peter Senior made the cut by the tightest of margins, with his two-over 73 enough to see him to two-over overall and into a tie for 53rd spot.
Two-time winner Peter Lonard was not as fortunate, as his second straight two-over 73 ended his week early.
