S.S.P. Chawrasia (Ind) – Second Round 67 (-4), Total 132 (-10) 
I’m playing very well in the last two days. I’ve played here many times so I know how to play on this course. This is my 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. I started well this year as well so I’m feeling very confident. I’m very excited for the next two days.

Siddikur Rahman (Ban) – Second Round 68 (-3), Total 133 (-9)
I was a little bit disappointed with my double bogey because I had a good number of birdies. It was good to birdie the eight and nine holes. The ninth hole is very difficult but I hit a good five wood for my second shot and it landed eight feet from the hole. I always play for par on the ninth hole.
On hole number four, I missed my shot and had to settle for double bogey. It shows that anything can happen on this golf course. I don’t want to think about my back injury. I rather think about my win here in 2013.
I really enjoy playing here and I want to keep the same rhythm in in the next two rounds. You will definitely have some pressure but I always try my best to avoid it.
Chapchai Nirat (Tha) – Second Round 71 (E), Total 136 (-6)
I’m happy with my round. I struggled in the morning because of the fog and it was slightly windy. I want to keep my ball on the fairways because if you miss it left or right, you will drop one or more shots. Yes, I still have a chance to go low during the weekend.
Anirban Lahiri (Ind) – Second Round 65 (-6), Total 138 (-4)
Now I’m in with a sniff. I managed to get some rhythm on the greens and made some good putts. I tried to focus on getting back to even-par yesterday and tried to push myself to make a few birdies coming in. I’m happy with the way I fought back.
You got to keep it on the fairways and it is easier said than done especially when the wind starts to pick up. Whoever can keep the ball in play the most will probably walk away with a big smile.
I’m happy that I fought back hard after yesterday’s disappointment. I’ve been fighting a very stiff back and sore shoulder. I’m going to continue to fight. It was nice to get my putter hot. I didn’t hit the ball that great. I chipped in a couple of times and holed some nice putts. It is important sometimes when you are not at your best to scrape through.
I’ve had a long relationship with the Delhi course. It wasn’t very friendly at the start but that’s turned around in the last three or four years. The feeling here now is just fantastic.
There’s no pin position on the golf course where we haven’t seen before. There won’t be any surprises here. I’m quite comfortable out there and hopefully I can play well. I would like to be at 12 or 13-under but after yesterday’s round, I will take where ever I am now.
