Gaganjeet Bhullar fires 5-under 67 in second round, rises to T-14 at Khaimah Classic
The star Indian golfer Gaganjeet Bhullar impressed the critics with his electrifying 5-under 67 on the second day of the Khaimah Classic.
Bhullar, who started with a steady 2-under 70, fired a sublime 5-under 67 in the second round to climb up from overnight 51 to tied-14th spot at the DP World Tour US$ 2,000,000 prize money event.
The overall scorecard of Bhullar looks impressive as he smashed seven birdies against just two bogeys, but that two bogeys came at the first and the final hole.
Bhullar's initial shot on the par-4, 373-yard first hole went in between the woods, resulting in a bogey on the very first hole. The other bogey he saw was on the par-5 18th hole, where he had five attempts to hole his shots instead of 5 for par or 4 for birdie.
Ryan Fox retained his top position even after a so-so 69 on the second day, all thanks to his first-round 9-under 63 card that helped him retain his top position at the midway stage of the event.
A decent first nine holes, followed by a roller-coaster back nine limit Fox’s lead to three shots.
While a pack of six golfers, including Oliver Bekker, who shot the lowest round, were at tied-2ndat matching scores of 9-under 135.
South-African golfer Bekker, who has 7 Sunshine Tour titles under his belt, had an amazing second round, in which he had nine birdies one eagle against just one bogey to reach tied-2.
