New South Welshman Mitchell Brown made 9-under in 12 holes in the second round of the South Pacific Export Radler PNG Open.

Brown was 1-over after his opening six holes but closed his front-9 with three consecutive birdies which was a sign of things to come.

On the back-9 he added a further four birdies and an eagle to his scorecard.

Playing alongside Brown and trying to keep up with him throughout the round was Kristopher Mueck.

The Victorian fired an impressive bogey free 5-under 67 today to be second on the leaderboard and three back of Brown.

Overnight leader Brad Moules fired an even par second round to be tied fifth with Damien Jordan and Aaron Wilkin who had rounds of 70 and 66 respectively today.

Rounding out the top-10 on 5-under the card are Tae Koh, Jake McLeod and amateur Anthony Quayle.

The second round cut was made at 4-over the card with 50 Professionals and three amateurs making the weekend rounds.

The third round of the South Pacific Export Radler PNG Open tees off at 9.20am with the final group of Brown, Mueck and Wilson on course at 11am.
