PETALING JAYA: An in-form Wisut Artjanawat of Thailand used all his experience to shoot a seven-under 65 in the second round and take sole charge of the leadership in the PGM Sime Darby Harvard Championship at Harvard Golf & Country Club in Sungai Petani, Kedah.
The 32-year-old’s two-day total of 10-under 134 sees him hold a two-stroke lead over four other golfers – Taiwan’s Chan Shih-chang and Lee Yi-cheng, Sweden’s Nils Floren and Malaysia’s Nicholas Pua, who are all tied on 136.
Wisut struck an eagle at the par-5 and also had three birdies and two back-nine bogeys.
Wisut, who won the Sabah Masters last October, hopes to stay focused and keep his game simple in the next two rounds.
“I’m happy with the way I’m playing. I’m hitting the ball well and comfortable with my short game, which helped me a lot today,” he said.
“But I must work on reducing my mistakes. Hopefully, I’ll be able to play some good golf.”
The RM200,000 tournament is the season-opening Asian Development Tour event.
