October 10: Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand fired a four-under-par 67 to trail by one shot at the halfway stage of the British Masters supported by Sky Sports on Friday.
The 2013 Asian Tour number one fired six birdies against two bogeys to trail Matthew Fitzpatrick of England and Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark on eight-under-par 134 at Woburn Golf Club.
The highlight of his round came on the 575-yard par-five 15th hole when he reached the green in two shots and settled for an easy birdie.
“Well, I know maybe -- hit about 280 yards with really heavy -- cold weather, I was able to hit it that long. After I strike the ball is when it fly in the air and it was like a bullet. It went down and my caddie is saying you might get on the green. Like the TV commenting, it is an unbelievable shot that I can reach in two,” said Kiradech.
“I have been striking the ball well all day. The driver has been quite well, and some missed shots. And the worst two shots at the end is tee shot on 17 and 18. But it's good to recover on the last hole and very nice putt to hole the last birdie,” he added.
Asian Tour winner Wade Ormsby of Australia was a further three shots back in tied 13th place while Rikard Karlberg of Sweden shot a 70 to tie for 23rd place. Asian Tour honorary member Jeev Milkha Singh of India slipped to tied 42nd following a 73.
