Indian rising start & hotshot Gaganjeet Bhullar continued his creditable form as he finished the second round at Tied 1st place of US$300,000 Thailand Open.
Starting the day with a three-shot deficit, the 29-year-old Bhullar traded six birdies against one bogey to move atop the leaderboard with overnight co-leader Rattanon, who battled to a 69, on 11-under-par 131 total at the scenic Thai Country Club.
Another Indian in frame, Jeev Milkha Singh fired 8 birdies against no bogey to end the second round at Tied 5th place alongside a host of players, which includes Ben Leong (64) of Malaysia, Thai star Kiradech Aphibarnrat (68) and Australian Scott Barr (67), who turned 45 years old today.
“When you get off to a good start, it gives you a lot of confidence and momentum going into the round. I just stayed consistent out there. I am happy to be in a good position right now. There are a lot of good players playing this week.” – Gaganjeet Bhullar said after the Round 2.
The Thailand Open, inaugurated in 1965, is also the first leg of the newly launched Panasonic Swing, which provides a bonus pool across five designated tournaments.
