Oh, we're halfway there...
The leading groups are now through the front nine so let's have a recap of what the opening few horus have done to the leaderboard.
Joachim B Hansen bogeyed the ninth but still leads on ten under par, alongside playing partner Brandon Stone who has played flawless golf for a round of four under par so far.
Hot on their heels are Jeff Winther, Callum Shinkwin and now Max Orrin. The Englishman has just gone eagle-birdie on 12 and 13 to move to nine under par. The 21 year old won here al Almouj Golf, The Wave 12 months ago, remember.
A clutch of players sit on eight under par, including Ricardo Gouveia, Rhys Davies and Scott Henry, who is four under par today and needing a high finish to have a chance of making the top 15 in the Road to Oman Rankings.
