Nicholas Fung posted his second successive two-under 70 for a 140 total on the second day of the PGM UMW Sabah Classic.
PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s Nicholas Fung joined compatriot Shaaban Hussin at the top of the leaderboard at the halfway stage of the RM180,000 PGM UMW Sabah Classic at the Sabah Golf and Country Club on Thursday.
Nicholas, the PGM Tour Order of Merit leader, posted his second successive two-under 70 for a 140 total. First round leader Shaaban struggled to a 73.
Canadian Lindsay Renolds also surged up the leaderboard to joint third with Peter Richardson of England (71) and Malaysian M. Sasidaran (72) on 141 after registering a 69.
A stroke further back on 142 was Thailand’s Pavit Tangkamolprasert (68), Jakraphan Premsirigorn (70) and Wasin Sripattranusorn (69), Taiwanese Chan Shih-chang (70), Venezuelan Wolmer Murillo (71) and Malaysia’s Iain Steel (71).
Shaaban said he was happy despite a poor round.
“It was tougher today than it was in the first round,” said Shaaban. “But I am happy to be still in the lead because it was not easy out there. Hopefully, tomorrow I can get back to where I want my game to be.”
It was a tough day at the office with only five players scoring in the 60s yesterday. Pavit’s four-under 68 was the lowest of the round.
