Bayron hits record low score to take halfway lead

PETALING JAYA: Filipino Rufino Bayron sizzled with a 10-under 62 for a commanding five-shot lead over compatriot Angelo Que at the halfway stage of the ICTSI Orchard Golf Championship in Manila.

The 32-year-old fired two eagles and eight birdies against two bogeys to return with a two-day total of 13-under 131.

His brilliant effort means he has become the second golfer to card the lowest round of 62 on the Asian Development Tour (ADT). Malaysia’s Rashid Ismail achieved a similar feat in 2012.

“I was a bit lucky today. My putter was hot and the putts seemed to go in,” said Bayron.

“I’m really happy with this round because everything in my game worked. My tee shots, approach and short game were really good and I hope to continue my form.”

Que, a three-time Asian Tour winner, posted a 69 on his home course to stay in contention while Scotland’s Clarke Lutton and Japan’s Masaru Takahashi were a further six shots adrift off the leader in joint third at the Orchard Golf and Country Club.
