Henan Open China Tour 2nd Round
After the 2nd round of the Henan Open China Tour I have shot a score of 70 (-2) to be 1 over total and T37th making the cut.
The day was hot and humid with cloud cover all day. The greens had improved from yesterday. Starting off the 10th I opened the day with 2 pars before making a birdie at 12 hitting a 7 iron to 3m on the par 4. Missed the green at the strong par 3, 14th short sided and long making bogey but bounced back with a birdie at the next. On the next two holes I had outside chances for birdie slipping away.
Taking driver off the tee on the 18th I ended up in a lie were the ball was above my feet and my feet were in the sand. The shot ended up rolling down the path left of the green and continued to roll 59m beyond the flag. Taking line of sight from the grand stand my angle into the green improved where I hit a great recovery, pitching the ball to 3m, making bogey.
Our group was then put on the clock for the next 3 holes by a European Tour Referee. At the 1st I made another bounce back birdie. Close approach on the 2nd to 2m, I missed for birdie, however at the next I had to chip out as seeing as though I did not past the dog leg for the right angle into the green. Pitched it close and made par coming off the clock. interesting stretch of holes.
Bogey at the strong par 3 4th before another bounce back birdie came at the next and followed that with another birdie driving the par 4 in two to 7m at 6 missing the eagle by a ball to the left. Chances at 7 and 9 went close while making a good par save on 8 another tough par 3.
Better day with the putter and please to have made the weekend of my 1st event on the China Tour in 2017.
