Karachi, Pakistan, October 12: Tirawat Kawesiribandit of Thailand goes into the clubhouse with the lead after carding a three-under-par 69 at the ongoing UMA CNS Open Golf Championship on Friday.

The 28-year-old Tirawat had an eventful day, as he traded an eagle and three birdies against two bogeys for a four-under-par 140 total at the Karachi Golf Club.

He is currently one shot ahead of the other players in the clubhouse including Singaporeans Mitchell Slorach and Koh Deng Shan, as well as Bangladeshi Siddikur Rahman.

Koh (71) and Siddikur (70) both adopted similar approaches in the second round of the US$300,000 event.

Koh’s conservative approach worked as he missed only three fairways on Friday. He traded three birdies against two bogeys and he will go into the weekend rounds with a decent chance of winning his maiden Asian Tour title.

Two-time Asian Tour champion Siddikur’s approach shots were on point as he missed only two greens in regulation. His near-flawless scorecard was marred by just a single bogey on the ninth hole.

Danny Masrin of Indonesia carded 66, the lowest score of the morning session. He was able to sustain his forward momentum throughout the entire day after a challenging par save at the start of his round on 10th.
