Chawrasia leads in Delhi
SSP Chawrasia has a one stroke lead over the rest of the field at the Hero Indian Open.
The Indian carded a four under 67 on the Delhi course to leave him on ten under after two rounds, one stroke ahead of Bangladeshi Siddikur Rahman.
Chawrasia played solid golf, starting off with a birdie on the first and rolling in eight pars in a row. At the turn, he birdied the next two par fours and earned another on the 16th to give him the outright lead.
“I’m playing very well the last two days,” the 36-year-old told europeantour.com.
“I’ve played here many times so I know how to play on this course…this is the first time I’m bogey free after 36 holes.
“I feel good and aggressive – I will do the same on the last two days. I’m very happy because I saved a lot of pars: it wasn’t easy to keep the bogeys away from my card, I had to make a lot of saves.
“It is tough when the wind changes direction but I know how to handle it here. I played well through the 2014 season and I started well this year as well, so I’m feeling very confident. I’m very excited for the next two days.”
Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren is tied with Chapchai Nirat on six under, four shots off the pace.
