Local rising star Alex van Wyk grabbed a share of the 36-hole lead in the Southern Cape Open with former SA Stroke Play champion Jason Smith on Friday.

Smith set the clubhouse target at seven under with rounds of 71 and 66 at Mossel Bay Golf Club, but the Gauteng North amateur was forced to share pole position when the Fancourt junior opened with a 69 and added a 68 in round two.

Reigning Nomads SA Boys Under-17 champion Herman Loubser also moved into contention with a second round 66.

The Boland golfer shares third on 138 with 2016 Gauteng North Open winner Jamie Bower from England and KeNako Academy pair Andre Nel and Jade Buitendag.

The Ernie Els and Fancourt Foundation’s Jovan Rebula also moved into striking distance on five under 139.
