BENOWA, Queensland (December 2, 2016) -- Highly ranked amateur Brett Coletta fired a second round 3-under 69 to comfortably make the cut at the Australian PGA Championship. Coletta will enter the weekend at Royal Pines Resort in a tie for 17th ahead of such notables as Marc Leishman and 2009 PGA Championship winner Y.E. Yang.

After finishing the final six holes of his even-par first round Friday morning Coletta got off to a rocky second round start with consecutive bogeys. Coletta clawed back with a 3rd hole birdie only to drop another shot on the 6th hole to fall once more to 2-over. That bogey however proved to be his final blemish of the day and he was able to draw back to even-par for the round and overall with 7th and 9th hole birdies.

With momentum now on his side Coletta continued to roll along with 12th and 13th hole birdies and then added another on the closing hole to finish with a bogey-free 3-under 33 back nine.

Curtis Luck needed a low round to make the cut and he did put together a 1-under 71 tally but he still fell one shot outside of the 3-over cutline. Luck converted his seventh birdie of the day on the 15th to reach 1-over but bogeys five and six of the round came on the final two holes costing Luck a chance to play the weekend.

Andrew Dodt, 12-under, holds the lead by himself at the midway point of the Australian PGA Championship.
