The China Tour was treated to a vision of the future, both near and more distant, as the mainland's elite Liang Wenchong, Li Chao and Zhang Lianwei moved to the top of the leaderboard in the China Tour - Zhuhai Leg. Liang snatched top spot after two rounds of the Golden Gulf Golf Club with an eagle on the par-five seventh, the 16th of his round, to record a six-under par 66 - the best of the day - and move to 10-under-par for the tournament. Li, who led for most of the day after five birdies in his first nine holes, is second, two shots behind, after shooting 67. Liang, the godfather of Chinese professional golf, stands third, four shots behind after a second round of 69. However, the mouthwatering prospect of 25-year-old Li's rising star shooting once and for all into Liang and Zhang's galaxy in today's final round was not on the trio's minds when the dust settled. Instead it was the achievement of two schoolboys, 14-year-old Guangdong junior Ye Jianfeng and the Canadian-based 15-year-old James Su Dong, both of whom made the cut. 'The wave on the beach is always pushed by the one behind,' said Zhang, using an old proverb to describe the way the younger generation overtakes the older. 'I'm pleased that Chinese kids want to beat me,' he added, when told that the pair specifically had him in their sights. 'In fact I want their target to be bigger. They should target international players like Tiger Woods. I think they have the ability.' Playing with Zhang and Li, Ye, a native of nearby Shenzhen, displayed a Tiger-like celebration routine when he learned his 11-over par total was good enough to get him into the final day. The Tiger head cover in his bag and the TW on his cap leave no room for doubt where his inspiration comes from. 'They both played very well. They're better than I was at their age,' said Liang. 'I think this is good for their chances of turning professional.'
