Dipankar Kaushal maintains two-shot lead in round two, Lucknow’s Rajesh Kumar Rawat is second

Lucknow, Jul 11 (UNI) Noida’s Dipankar Kaushal followed up his fiery
first round of eight-under-62 with a steady one-under-69 in round two
to maintain his two-shot lead at the PGTI Feeder Tour event being
staged at the Palms Golf Club & Resort, Sushant Golf City, Ansal API
here.
32-year-old Kaushal (62-69) totalled nine-under-131 at the end of day
two of the 2018 Feeder Tour season’s sixth and last event.
Lucknow golfers Rajesh Kumar Rawat (64-69) and Amardeep Rawat (65-69)
continued in second and third place respectively for the second day in
succession. Rajesh’s total stood at seven-under-133 while Amardeep had
a tally of six-under-134.
The cut fell at two-over-142. Forty-four golfers made the cut out of a
total of 82.
Dipankar, currently 15th on the Feeder Tour Order of Merit thanks to
two top-10s in the season, now goes into the final round of an event
as the leader for the first time in his career.
Kaushal, searching for his maiden title, began the second round with a
birdie on the first. However, he lost some momentum by dropping
strokes on the sixth and 10th courtesy a three-putt and a poor drive.
Dipankar then made a comeback on the back-nine with some brilliant
iron-play. He almost made a hole-in-one on the 12th where his tee shot
stopped two inches from the hole to set up an easy birdie. Kaushal
then drove the green on the par-4 17th with his three-iron before
making a two-putt for birdie there.
Local lad Rajesh Kumar Rawat built on his first round effort of 64
with a solid 69 on Wednesday that featured three birdies and two
bogeys. The highlight of his second round was a spectacular chip on
the 16th that led to a tap-in birdie.
Rawat, a former winner on the Feeder Tour, said, “The third place
finish at the Lucknow Golf Club last week really helped my confidence.
I’ve been quite consistent since then. I’m two off the lead now, so
it’s all about creating those opportunities early during the final
round.”
Amardeep Rawat, another Lucknow-based golfer who was runner-up at last
week’s event, had an eventful second round as he produced an
astounding two eagles along with two birdies at the cost of three
bogeys and a double-bogey.
Feeder Tour Order of Merit leader Pawan Verma of Delhi returned an
even-par-70 on day two to be placed tied seventh at four-under-136.
Kapurthala’s Ashbeer Saini, currently second in the Order of Merit,
made the cut by one shot as he totalled two-over-142 to be tied 35th.
Gurugram-based Dhruv Sheoran, presently ranked third in the Order of
Merit, posted the second day’s best score of 64 to be placed tied 17th
at one-under-139.
