David Smail is the leading New Zealander at the Indonesia PGA Championship after first round leader Gareth Paddison tumbled down the leaderboard.

Paddison, who held a one-shot lead after his eight-under opening round, dropped to a tie for 33rd after carding a two-over 74, including five birdies, five bogeys and a double-bogey, on a low-scoring day at the Bumi Serpong Damai course.

Paddison's round started unravelling on either side of the turn, with bogeys at the ninth and 10th holes, then went downhill in the final five holes. The Wellington left-hander bogeyed the 14th, double-bogeyed the 15th and bogeyed the 17th, before a birdie on the final hole.

Earlier, after a bogey at the second, Paddison responded with birdies at the fourth, seventh and eighth to get to -10 for the tournament.

Smail, who birdied three of his last six holes, posted an eagle, five birdies and three bogeys in his four-under 68 to lift to a tie for eighth at -9. Smail's eagle came on the par-four sixth hole.

Fellow Kiwi Michael Hendry is lurking in a tie for 16th at -8 after a three-under 69, which included six birdies and three bogeys.

New Zealanders Mark Brown and Michael Long both missed the cut. Brown was one shot shy of the cut at -3 after a four-under 68, including six birdies and two front-nine bogeys, while Long carded an even par 72 to end at par for the tournament.

South Korea's Sang-hyun Park, Philippines' Juvic Pagunsan and Japan's Ryuko Tokimatsu share the lead at -13 after all three fired eight-under 64s. Tokimatsu went bogey-free, while Park and Pagunsan both recorded nine birdies.
