Sydney: Leader Matt Jones complained of stinging eyes and trouble breathing as smoke from raging bushfires descended on the Australian Open golf competition for the second day running on Friday.

Jones birdied the final hole for a one-stroke lead over England’s Paul Casey as the players struggled through another day of smoke haze.

World No. 14 Casey, the highest-ranked player in the field, led for much of the day after a sparkling six-under-par 65.

But Jones, who won the tournament in 2015, dropped a tricky putt on the last to be 10-under for the tournament after his first-round 67.

Another Australian, Dimitrios Papadatos, was alongside Casey one shot back.
