Jeev Milkha Singh blazes a 63 at the Thailand Open to take the lead
Jeev Milkha Singh fired a brilliant 8-under-par 62 taking him to the top position in the ongoing second round of the US$300,000 Thailand Open on Friday.
The veteran, who opened his campaign with a round of 71, carded eight birdies in the second round to match the efforts of Keith Horne (67) and Jazz Janewattananond (67) to go into the halfway stage at 8-under-par 134 at the Thai Country Club.
Yesterday, the leaderboard was dominated by home players but things changed today when Jeev played a brilliant Round 2.
Singapore’s Mitchel carded a 66, trailing the trio by one to put himself in contention at the flagship event, which returned to the Asian Tour this week following an eight-year gap.
Meanwhile, Order of Merit Champion Scott Hend of Australia carded a 67 to move within the three shots off the lead while his playing partners for the day, Gavin Green (66) and Shiv Kapur (67) stayed further shot back on 137.Published 19 May 2017, 19:10 IST
