    The 43-year-old Pagunsan had a 73 in the second round for a two-round total of 139 after four bogeys and two birdies, failing to sustain his fiery start to his Olympic golf campaign.

    It was also the day where some of the big names made their move and climbed into contention for medals.

    Mito Pereira of Chile, after ending up at 20th on Thursday, is going to the clubhouse at second place after a 65 for an 8-under par 134 after the second round.

    Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy of Ireland also jumped to medal contention after a 65 and 66 respectively with a 7-under par 135.
