The bars of excitement continue to grow high from the Tampines course. The score table on Day 2 went unstable today as few of the players climbed up while few slipped down the table. The spectators were able to witness a lot of birdies and eagles today at the Tanah Merah Country Club course as the golfers were swinging their clubs and hitting marvelous shots throughout the round.

Khalin Joshi closed Round 2 at the ‘The Singapore International’ standing second in position at two over par. With three birdies in his bag on 8th, 9th and 18th holes and five single bogeys for the second consecutive day, he makes it happen to be a flabbergasting delight to spectate but quite struggling and disappointing than day 1 for him at the Tanah Merah Country Club. His total on the 72 par course for two days is 141 with 67-74.
“My putting wasn’t good today. It wasn’t a good day on the greens for me. I struggled with the putter but overall, I am happy with the way I’m playing. Obviously, it was tough out there. It’s not going to be easy. The winds were up. I felt like I should have capitalised more earlier in the day because it wasn’t as windy as now. But overall, I’m in a good position and just looking forward to the next two days.” Joshi said.
