Kshitij Naveed Kaul

Kshitij Naveed Kaul made an astonishing 10 birdies at the cost of a lone bogey to fall just one short of Indian professional Kapil Kumar’s course record of 62 set in 2018.

The 21-year-old Kaul, a two-time PGTI winner, scored six birdies on the back-nine thanks to some outstanding approach shots and up and downs as he landed it within five feet on five occasions.

His lone bogey was the result of a three-putt on the 15th. On the front-nine, Kshitij added four more birdies including a 25-feet conversion on the ninth. Bangladesh’s Md Razu continued in third place after shooting a second consecutive 68 that took his total to eight-under 136.

Bangladesh’s premier golfer Md Siddikur Rahman, followed up his first round of 71 with a 66 on Thursday to rise three spots to fourth position at seven-under 137.

Divesh Rana was the next best Indian after Kshitij Naveed Kaul as the former occupied tied fifth place at six- under 138 along with Bangladesh’s Badal Hossain.
