We pick htings back up with Percy on 18, he would sink this birdie after hitting his tee shot into the woods.

Percy went into the clubhouse with the lead at -12.

Cameron Percy:"I was asking where out of bounds was to see if I could hit another ball. But I thought I've got it. I was on a rock and I could punch it out alright. Got it close. Then it was a pretty easy putt. It was a right edge putt. SO it was good, very happy."

Not long after the Australian finished, New Zealand's Steven Alker would tap in for par on the 9th. to tie for the lead at minus 12.

Steven Alker: "It's gone well, I've kept bogeys off the card. I'm bogey free through 6 so thats a good start."

Later in the day the 12 year old Micheal Kim would birdie the 18th to jump into the lead alone at -13.

Michael Kim: "Well not everyone is done yet but it feels good to be close to the lead. I haven't played my best this season so it is starting to come together."
