Moon, Norris share halfway lead at OneAsia Tour event

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean Moon Kyong-jun birdied five of his last six holes to grab a share of the halfway lead at the at the Maekyung Open on Friday.

Moon’s brilliant late charge helped him sign for a second- round 66, joining Australian Jason Norris at the top of the leaderboard at seven-under in the 1 billion won ($917,000) OneAsia Tour event.

Norris carded a three-under-par 69 after recently buying some old shafts on eBay which he had better luck with in the past.

“We change clubs every few years so that’s why I stopped using them,” he said.

“They stopped making them in about 2008 but I found them online and bought them for a couple of hundred bucks.”

Teenage amateur Kim Young-woong slipped back to outright third place at three under with a 74 after leading with his opening 67, with just eight other players under par.
