Indian Open: Pablo Larrazabal Two Shots Off Lead After Almost Missing Tee

India’s Shubhankar Sharma. – AP

He showed few ill-effects when he got to the 10th tee, carding nine birdies to go with a double and two bogeys to get to five under and share the early lead.

Shubhankar Sharma continued his incredible run of form as he stormed into contention on the second day of the Hero Indian Open with a course-record 64.

The Argentine carded a second round four under 68 at DLF Golf and Country Club in New Delhi, enough to move him to 11 under for the tournament, four ahead of rising Indian star Sharma.

And the 21-year-old took that momentum into the second round, making birdies at the first and fourth before responding to a bogey at seven with another birdie at the eighth. With two wins under his belt already this season on the European Tour, Sharma, who also received a sponsor exemption into the Valero Texas Open on Thursday, now leads the Race to Dubai standings.

"My heart was pumping big time, I was very nervous".

"I knew about the course record so I went from it". I told myself that I have momentum on my side.

Asked what would be his strategy in the weekend, Shubhankar said: "I exactly know how that course behaves. To hold the record on my home course would mean a lot to me and that was why I chose to go for the green [on the par-five 18th]". Today I hit plenty of fairways and greens. It's just 18 holes done and a lot of golf is still to be played. I just need to foot on the pedal and keep on going. "I'm just playing differently". "That's my next target, I have to play well in Europe", Chawrasia said.

Spain's Pablo Larrazabal (71) and England's Andrew Johnston (66) are a shot behind Shubhankar in tied third, while four golfers, including South Africa's Keith Horne (73) and Thailand's Panuphol Pittayarat (70) are now in tied fifth on 139.

Four players joined Larrazabal on five under, with Paul Peterson, Matteo Manassero, Adrien Saddier and Keith Horne all two shots behind Grillo.
