Too bad the horn blew as Gavin finds momentum

PETALING JAYA: Malaysian golfer Gavin Green put on an improved display that should have seen him end the day in a better position.

But the 27-year-old’s good momentum was halted after inclement weather forced the second- round play at the par-71 Kasumigaseki Country Club to be suspended yesterday.

Gavin was among 16 competitors out of the 60-man field who were still on the course when the horn blew.

Gavin found himself at one-under after making four birdies and three bogeys through 14 holes thus far. He showed his determination to battle back from his poor opening 74 by gaining four shots in the first 11 holes to offset two bogeys at the second and ninth.

The Malaysian currently sits joint-55th - an improvement of two spots from his overnight position – and he will be aiming to climb further when play resumes at 7.45am local time today.

American Xander Schauffele took a one-shot clubhouse lead over Mexico’s Carlos Ortiz after firing a splendid 63 to reach the halfway stage at 11-under.
