Scott Strange has made the most of the early morning conditions to take over the lead at the NZ PGA Championship near Queenstown.

The Australian began the day at three under, but dismantled the back nine in 30 on the way to a seven under 65 to be 10 under for the tournament.

New Zealander Gareth Paddison is a shot back after carding a six under 66 to be nine under for the tournament and in a share of second with Australia's Rohan Blizard, who was four under today.

Kim Felton (-8), Mathew Perry, Scott Laycock and Michael Long (all -7), have been the other players to move past overnight leaders Adam Bland, who has dropped a shot early in his second round, Aaron Townsend and Matthew Ballard.

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
