KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 12 (Bernama) – Malaysian golfer Ben Leong continues his commendable performance at the 2018 CIMB Classic when he was tied in the 29th place, carding six-under-par 138 after two rounds at the TPC Kuala Lumpur West Course.
In the second round today, the 32-year-old Sabahan, who began from the first tee, had a better start when he was able to card birdies at the second and fifth hole compared to yesterday.
The world number 360 Leong, lost focus for a while when he suffered with a bogey and double bogey at the 10th and 11th hole respectively, but managed to recover with birdies at the 12th, 14th and 18th hole to finish with two-under-par 70 to share the 29th place with seven other players including world number 37, Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand.
In the opening round yesterday, the national number two recovered from a slow start to tie in 20th place with five other players after carding four-under-par 68.
“I kind of lost my patience in the 10th and 11th hole, if not I could have done better there…But managed to get it back with a birdie on top. Maybe because this is my sixth tournament in a row, I am kind of tired,” the one-time Asian Tour winner said.....
