August 8: Home favourite Khalin Joshi fired a four-under-par 67 to charge into contention at the inaugural US$300,000 TAKE Solutions Masters on Friday.
The Bengaluru born Joshi, who is also sponsored by TAKE, totalled seven-under-par 135 to put himself in prime position to win his first Asian Tour title on his home course the Karnataka Golf Association Golf Course.
Syed Saqib Ahmed produced a 70 for a 137 total in the Asian Tour tournament. The second round is still in progress with overnight leader Poom Saksansin of Thailand teeing off in the afternoon.
Joshi, who grew up playing golf at the Karnataka course, took advantage of his course knowledge to surge up the leaderboard courtesy of six birdies.
“It is a good feeling to be in contention. It was a good round but I felt that I left a few birdies out there. I’m really happy and I’m in a good position for the weekend,” said Joshi.
“You want to keep playing well on your golf course because you practice day-in and day-out here. I’m excited to give it a shot for my first Asian Tour event and see how it plays out during the weekend.
“There is no better chance than this because I’m playing on my home course and I’m sponsored by TAKE. Hopefully on Sunday I’m the last man standing,” he added.
Ends.
