I played very similar to yesterday. I hit the ball nicely and gave myself a bunch of chances. I converted several of them in the front-nine which is always nice. It was tricky today as the winds were swirling around all over the place. They made the approach shots into the greens quite hard to judge. But if you can give yourself good chances, you can take it on from there. I’m going to stick to my game plan and keep going from there.

I’ve been playing well the last two days and it has been good so far. I’m enjoying my time here in Myanmar. I am very satisfied with the way my game has been last two days. The layout is very nice and I like it and some of the holes look like some courses back home.
I have hit well and found lot of fairways, and even when I missed the fairway it has been by a small margin and I have recovered well. I needed 29 putts in first round and it was 25 in second. In fact I putted really well on my first nine, which was the back stretch of the course and I needed only 11 putts with seven one-putts. Two of the longer putts were on 13th from 20 feet and from around 15-16 feet on third, both for birdies. I also had two good par saves, when I missed the green in regulation on 16th and sixth. On 17th I chipped close for a par putt and on 18th I lagged it well from over 40-feet to three feet for par. All in all, a good two days and I don’t want to tamper with anything and just keep this momentum going.

I was hitting the ball very well throughout all 18 holes, giving myself lots of birdie chances. I missed several putts from seven to 13 but I recovered well on 14 with a good up and down and managed to close with two birdies. Overall it was a good round as I've stayed bogey-free the last two days. This golf course is very much like those we play back on in India. It's not very long and you just need to find the fairways. I was struggling with my driver last week but i managed to hit the ball straight this week and if i can continue doing so, i'll be there.

There was nothing really going on until 10 through 14 where he made several nice putts and that got me going which was good. The greens were a little slower in the morning as there were more moisture but they started rolling nicely towards the end. I just got to be patient and keep doing what I’ve been doing.
