#PanasonicOpenIndia Rd 2 What They Said

Chiragh Kumar (Mas) – Second Round 66 (-6), Total 133 (-11)
I told myself not to let the poor start get to me. I missed a short birdie putt on the 14th hole and I kept telling myself to move on. Everything fell into place after that so I’m glad I missed that putt!
I wish I holed a few more birdie putts and finish higher than I did. Being patient is something that comes with age, maturity and some experience. You keep grinding it out until the round is over.
I’m playing good and the chances keep coming. If I keep doing what I’ve been doing then I’ll have a lot more opportunities to contend for titles.
I hit a bad tee shot on the 11th hole. I tried to play a low cut around the trees and left it in a bad position. It was tough to make up-and-down from there. On the 13th hole I hit a bad second shot into the bunker. I could have gotten away with two pars but that’s okay.
I made my fair share of birdies so I can’t complain. All my birdies were close. It has been a while since I’ve been in the lead. There’s a long day and night ahead so let’s see what happens.
Mithun Perera (Slk) – Second Round 70 (-2), Total 136 (-8)
I played better golf compared to yesterday but overall it was a mixed day. I hit a lot of my shots close to the hole but couldn’t hole the putts.
My putting stroke was good but I couldn’t make it. I played quite well honestly except for the double bogey on the 13th hole. I was on the fairway but my second shot bounced into the bush which was disappointing.
At Delhi Golf Club, one shot can take away a good round. I won’t worry about the next two days. I’ll try to get more red numbers and see where it leads me. On the seventh hole I almost had a hole-in-one but my ball turned at the last minute (6 iron).
Siddikur Rahman (Ban) – Second Round 70 (-2), Total 138 (-6)
I didn’t hit the ball straight off the tees but my short game saved me. I’m still happy with my score. I should not pressure myself even though Chiragh is leading. Anything can happen here. One shot can give you huge problems here. Just focus on my own game and that’s the key to a good score.
