Chonburi (Thailand), March 21 (IANS) Young Gaganjeet Bhullar, often seen as a future Indian star who has yet to string together four good rounds, shot a six-under to make himself noticed in the second round of the Asian Tour International here Friday. Bhullar, who shot a two-over 74 on the first day, is now five-under 139 for two rounds as more than 50 players were yet to complete the second round because play was suspended early due to poor light at the Pattana Golf and Sports Resort Friday.
The provisional leader was Sattaya Supupraman of Thailand who was five-under 13 holes and was 13-under for 31 holes with five more to play. Also at 13-under was Noh Seung Yul of Korea, who at eight-under had jointly held the lead for first with Supupraman. Noh had played 12 holes in second round.
Rahil Gangjee, India’s best in the first round at six-under, was even through 14 holes in second round for a total of six-under and provisionally 22nd. Bhullar at four-under was at provisional 39th place.
Apart from Bhullar, the other Indian to come in with a good card was Digviay Singh with a 68 that gave him a total of four-under 140 in tied 39th.
Gaurav Ghei (73) was three-under 141 in 61st place, while Arjun Singh (70) at two-under was 72nd and in danger of missing the cut. Gurbaaz Mann (70) and Firoz Ali (70) were both one-under for 36 holes in 85th place and are sure to miss the cut. Amandeep Johl, who started with 658 in first round was three-over through 16 holes and also sure to miss the cut.
Chinese Taipei’s Lin Wen-tang carded a strong four-under-par 68 in the morning to be 11-under and the clubhouse leader.
Filipino Juvic Pagunsan is enjoying his Thai campaign after a 66 pushed him up to joint second place alongside Yasin Ali of England and Singapore’s Mardan Mamat, who both carded matching 67s. England’s Simon Griffiths was also at 10-under, but he still had two holes in second round to play.
