Thai golfer Danthai on top at Take Solutions Masters
Bengaluru Aug 10 (IANS) Thailands golfer Danthai Boonma went on a birdie spree as he slotted birdies in each of his first seven holes to blaze through the second round in 10-under 61 at the Take Solutions Masters at the KGA Course here on Friday.
At a total of 15-under 127 Danthai is now five shots ahead of second placed Argentine Miguel Carballo (66-66) and Maverick Antcliff (67-65) who are at 10-under.
They are being chased by India s S Chikkarangappa (69-64 9-under 133 in total) in fourth place and S.S.P. Chawrasia (69-65 8-under 134 in total) in fifth place.
The 22-year-old Danthai who had a flawless five-under 66 on the opening day stayed bogey free for the second straight day.
"I forgot my Buddhist pendant necklace this morning. It s like my lucky charm so I went back to the hotel to take just 20 minutes before my tee time this morning. Thankfully the hotel is just next to the course " he said in a release.
There were five Indians in the top-10. Apart from Chikka and Chawrasia Viraj Madappa is tied sixth while Khalin Joshi and Honey Baisoya are tied ninth.
Chikka turned on the magic once again to card seven-under 64 to rise closer to the top. Chikka who had a touch of cold on the first day had eight birdies against one bogey to get to 9-under 133 but six shots behind the leader Danthai.
While Chikka gave locals a lot to cheer in the afternoon the morning belonged to one India s most popular stars Chawrasia who shot a bogey-free seven-under 65 in perfect conditions to get to eight-under 134 and fifth.
Chawrasia has been a little distracted with the illness of his mother back in Kolkata. On his mother s health he said: "The news is better so that helped me focus more on the golf. Yes during the off-time and break between the shots I was thinking about her but I didn t let it affect my game."
