American Jimmy Walker has control of the tournament at 10-under through 16 holes of his second round but Day is surging up the leaderboard with five birdies in his last six holes.

Day is five-under for the tournament with five holes to play in round two, sitting five shots back in a tie for fifth.

After a double bogey on the seventh hole dropped him back to even par, Day made birdies on the next three holes.

He cooled momentarily with par on the 11th before once again knocking in back-to-back birdies.

Argentina's Emiliano Grill is second at eight-under through 16 holes with British Open champion Henrik Stenson sitting in the clubhouse at six-under after a three-under-67.

Robert Streb (12 holes) is also six under.

John Senden shot an even-par-70 to stay at two-under where he is joined by Marcus Fraser (14 holes) as the next best Australians in a tie for 17th.

Scott Hend (14 holes) is one under.

Marc Leishman (69) and Adam Scott (13 holes) are even-par and Aaron Baddeley (16 holes) is one-over, the current projected cut.

Matt Jones is three-over through 13 holes and Greg Chalmers is five over after 11 holes, needing to make birdies to make the cut.

World No.2 Dustin Johnson finished a distant nine-over-par, ensuring Day will remain on top of the world rankings for at least another week.
