Jordan Zunic fired 11 birdies on Saturday at Royal Pines.

Cameron Smith clinched the Australian PGA Championship title after beating Jordan Zunic on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff at Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast on Sunday.

Fox, with super-caddy Steve Williams on his bag, carded an uncharacteristic 75 in the opening round but was eight shots better yesterday, carding six birdies and a lone bogey to shoot 67 and reach two-under par, 10 shots off the leaders.

But it could have been so much better, Zunic on track for a rare sub-60 round until a bogey, double bogey finish on an otherwise flawless day.

Smith bogeyed the 18th in regulation after birdieing the 17th to take the lead.

He shares 45th place with fellow Kiwis Michael Hendry (72) and Mark Brown (73) at two-under par.

Andhra cabinet recommends 5 per cent reservation for Kapus
Finally, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu has bowed to the Kapu community's quota/reservation demand. A special Cabinet meeting is scheduled to be held on Saturday to discuss the draft Bill on Kapu reservation.

"The way I played all day, it was just really what I know I'm capable of doing, so to actually go out and do that when it's in tournament mode and on a Saturday afternoon is awesome". Another run of four birdies on the back nine and suddenly a 59 was on the cards for Zunic.

The Sydney-based Zunic has already endured an eventful career.

Two years later he won the New Zealand Open and now, two years on from that win, the Australian PGA Championship is his to lose.

He has found clarity reading O'Hern's book, Tour Mentality: Inside the Mind of a Tour Pro, and has since enjoyed some sage advice from the tour veteran this week. Sergio Garcia shot a 74 and finished 12 strokes behind.

Second round leader Adam Bland finished third with a 17-under 271 after signing for a 68 in the co-sanctioned Australasian and European Tour event.

With storms expected on Sunday, organisers have made the call to start off two tees three hours earlier than planned in the hope of crowning a victor before the rain arrives.
