A SOLID second round has Bendigo golfer Andrew Martin in the top 15 at the halfway mark of the South Pacific Open Championship in Noumea.
After opening the tournament with a three-under par 68, Martin followed up with a two-under par 69 in Thursday's second round.
With two rounds to play he's in outright 12th at five-under par, seven shots behind leader Theodore Coroneo.
Martin looked set to be two shots closer, but a double bogey on the 9th, the final hole of his round, took the gloss off his day.
Fellow Bendigo golfer Kris Mueck is in a tie for 35th at even-par.
