Lahiri, Bhullar in tied 23rd after round two

Kuala Lumpur, Oct 26, 2012, PTI : 22:58 IST
Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri made up for the slow start on the opening day with a flawless five-under 66, that was one of the only five bogey-free rounds on the second day of the USD 6.1 million CIMB Classic here on Friday.

Lahiri, even-par for the first day, is now five-under for 36 holes, the same as compatriot Gaganjeet Bhullar, who after the first day high of six-under 66 struggled to a one-over 72 on second. The Indian duo was tied 23rd in the 48-man field, of whom 38 posted sub-par rounds on second day.

Meanwhile, Asian Tour’s Jbe Kruger outscored playing partner Tiger Woods with a seven-under 64, which moved him to second place and two shots behind halfway leader Robert Garrigus (64-64).

In the event’s two-year history, the best finish by a player in the field from the Asian Tour Order of Merit was last year’s tied fifth by Mardan Mamat.

The 36-hole total is the lowest of Garrigus’ career. His previous low on the PGA TOUR was 130 at this year’s RBC Canadian Open. Kruger, paired with Woods, shot a second-round seven-under to move to second, two off the lead, heading into the weekend.

Modest start by Smriti


Indian golfer Smriti Mehra made a modest start to her campaign at the Euro 350,000 Suzhou-Taihu Ladies Open, carding a three-over 73 in the opening round in Suzhou, China, on Friday. The Indian, who was eighth at the Ladies Indonesian Open earlier in the month, was lying 73rd and needed a good second round to make the cut.
