Kiwi golfer Gareth Paddison staged a stirring revival to keep his hopes of defending his Victorian PGA golf championship title alive after two rounds at the Forest Resort course in Creswick.

Paddison fired a six under par 66 yesterday to finish inside the cut and sit alongside fellow New Zealander Pieter Zwart.

Paddison had looked out of the reckoning after a horrible first round 77 while Zwart carded rounds of 69 and 74. They are six shots off the lead.

Three other New Zealanders made the cut mark of 147 with David Klein (75, 71) Michael Long (71, 75) and Ryan Fox (78, 69) all getting through.

Other New Zealanders to fall by the wayside were Josh Geary (76, 75), Hamish Robertson (77, 75), Peter Spearman-Burn (77, 77), Troy Rophia (77, 78), Todd Nicholson (79, 78) and Nick Gillespie (84, 75).

If she is able to, when do you expect Lydia Ko to win her first major?

Next year, she's so close

She's still working towards it, within three years

It may be longer than we think, within five years

The expectation might be too much, maybe never
