Sharma breaks course record at Indian Open

The Indian Open is one of the more important tournaments on the European Tour

Shubhankar Sharma has shattered many a record since his first global win in South Africa late a year ago.

Pre-tournament favourite Shubhankar Sharma of India delivered a course-record score of eight-under 64 while Emiliano Grillo of Argentina carded a 68 to take the lead in round two of the Hero Indian Open in Gurugram on Friday.

As it had happened in the tournament in the past years, exciting tussles are expected in the fourth round on Sunday.

Johnston produced a blemish-free 66 in the final round to surge within touching distance of victory, while American Sihwan Kim (68) finished in sole third on eight under. Johnston fought back strongly on the back nine and when Wallace bogeyed the hard par-3 18th, "Beef" was in the battle. The double-bogey on the fifth compounded my problems. However, the one birdie he managed in the 18th hole brought him back to the top, a position he held briefly midway through the day.

Ajeetesh Sandhu (74) was the next best Indian after Shubhankar on T26 at two-over-218. The Indian said he was happy with the way things went on Saturday. He was unbelievable the way he handled himself over the last two days, after being somewhat in the back ground on the first two days.

"It was a mixed bag as everything happened".

A 10-foot birdie at the seventh took Stephen Gallacher to within two, as Johnston posted back-to-back gains from the eighth to reach the turn in 32 and join the group sharing second. The top-ranked Indian golfer, who was five-over through his first nine holes in round one, staged a remarkable fightback to rise into contention by going 12-under over the next 27 holes.

"I made a few bad swings coming in, got a bad bounce on the 17th, but other than that, I think I played pretty solidly". The birdie on 10th was fantastic as the hole was played off the back tees.

"It was a disappointing day for me", he said later.

Wallace chipped in from off the 10th green but Johnston stayed in touch with a five-foot gain at the 13th, while Gallacher's challenge slipped away with four bogeys in a six-hole stretch on the back nine. This is a tough course and it is not easy to go low here.

Wallace had been sensational with three birdies, an eagle in the front nine, besides a bogey at the third. You can't overpower this course.

"I'm going to rock up tomorrow and do the same as I've done all week".

"I hit some really good shots and that play-off: I pumped it down there on the last and it went a long way and then a four iron went even further than I thought it would so I was jacked up a bit. That 17th hole was brutal today", said Wallace.
