Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri lost his track on day two at the PGA Tour’s inaugural Bermuda Championship in Southampton.
Lahiri, who has had a great start to the new season, and was at the tied-7th position after the superb day 1 with a five-under 66 in the first round but couldn’t sustain the momentum, and is now lying tied-50 after the second round of the PGA Bermuda Championship.
Lahiri had four birdies and 3 bogeys, including two birdies in five holes between 15th and 18th. But the double bogey on the 11th hole shatters his round 1 hard work at the Bermuda championship.
While the other Indian on the field Arjun Atwal plays a similar kind of game (-2 under 69) on round two as well, but slips from tied-34th to a tied-40th position with a total of -4 under 138 in two days.
The American Brendon Todd is settled at the top of the leaderboard, as he birdied his last four holes on Friday for an 8-under 63 and a share of the lead with Harry Higgs and Scottie Scheffler after the second round of the PGA Tour’s inaugural Bermuda Championship.
Todd finished on the front nine at hilly Port Royal Golf Club, Southampton, also birdieing Nos. 2 and 4. Higgs shot a 65, closing with a birdie on the par-4 18th. Scheffler, the first-round leader after a 62, had a 69. All three of them were now at 11-under 131.
‘’It’s one of the shorter ones we play on the tour and it forces everybody to hit the ball with the same clubs off the tee,’’ Todd said. ‘’The good thing about that for me is, I’m hitting the same clubs into the greens as everybody else and for some reason that tends to work out well in my favor. So, the course is good for me, for my game, and I’ve been swinging well.’’
