Kiwi golfer Josh Munn has fired a seven-under par 65 to jump into contention at the South African Stroke Play Championship.

The 21-year-old, who opened with a two-over par 74 at a windy Oubaai Golf Resort and Spa in George, climbed from tied for 45th into a share of ninth place.

Munn will begin round three on a five-under par total, only four shots back from South African Werner Ferreira (66, 69).

The New Zealand rep got off to a slow start in round two with a bogey on the first hole but he soon made up for that with a run that included four birdies and an eagle to make the turn in five under par.

He added further birdies on 12 and 14 and then made four pars coming home to sign for a 65 and the low round of the day by two shots.

Fellow New Zealander Vaughan McCall also made the most of the benign morning conditions on day two.

The 21-year-old from the Gore Golf Club, who opened with a round of one-over par 73 to be tied 33rd, carded a four-under par 68 in round two to jump 20 places into a share of 13th.

The two other Kiwis in the field Tyler Hodge (75, 76) and Blair Riordan (78, 74) both missed the cut.

Would you be happy to pay for PGA Tour coverage online?

Absolutely. I'll do whatever it takes to watch golf.

It depends on how good the service is.

If it's not on TV, I won't watch it.

What? The PGA Tour's not going to be on Sky TV?
