PETALING JAYA: An in-form Jakraphan Premsirigorn of Thailand fired a second round five-under 67 to share the clubhouse lead with American Dodge Kemmer at the PGM MNRB Sarawak Masters, which was suspended due to fading light, on Friday.
Thirty-three players will return at 7am Saturday to complete their second round at the Sarawak Golf Club in Kuching. The third round is slated to start after 10am.
Jakraphan and Kemmer, who carded a 68 Friday, have a two-round total of eight-under 136 while local prospect M. Sasidaran shot up the leaderboard with a 67 to be two strokes behind at the RM200,000 Asian Development Tour (ADT) event.
Filipino Carl Santos-Ocampo and Australian Adam Blyth were three shots behind the leaders after posting rounds of 70 and 67 respectively.
Overnight leader R. Nachimuthu of Malaysia and compatriot Nicholas Fung, who opened with a 66, are amongst those who have to return to the course this morning to complete their round.
Jakraphan, who has three top-10 finishes on the ADT this season, fought his way into contention with six birdies against one bogey.
“I took my time and played it one shot at a time. I didn’t really focus on my scores. I just concentrated on my game,” said the 21-year-old, who is ranked 14th on the ADT Order of Merit.
Kemmer, who came through the Asian Tour Qualifying School in January, remained on course for a maiden ADT victory.
“I managed to avoid big mistakes and made a few putts which were pretty good. I’ll keep to my own pace and hopefully save more putts in the weekend rounds,” said the 26-year-old.
