Solid Harding takes halfway lead in Indonesia
From the Asian Tour
Justin Harding of South Africa shot a six-under-par 66 to grab the clubhouse lead at the ongoing US$500,000 Bank BRI Indonesia Open on Friday.
The 32-year-old Harding, who is playing in the tournament via an invite from the organisers, was bogey-free as he carded six birdies for a 11-under-par 133 total at the Pondok Indah Golf Course.
Rattanon Wannasrichan of Thailand carded a 67, the lowest score from the morning session. He is just two shots behind Harding. Rattanon, as well as Zimbabwe’s Scott Vincent (66) and India’s Khalin Joshi (68) will progress to Saturday on 135.
Four-time Asian Tour champion Chapchai Nirat has bounced back from two-consecutive missed cuts on the Asian Tour by carding 69 and 67 in the first and second round respectively. He is well above the cut line on a 136 total, along with Sihwan Kim of United States.
The top-65 golfers and ties will progress to the third round of the Bank BRI Indonesia Open.
