Antalya (Turkey), November 8 

India’s Shubhankar Sharma fired a flawless 8-under 64 in the second round to rise to tied-11th at the halfway stage of the Turkish Airlines Open golf tournament here today.

The 23-year-old, who was T-37 overnight, holed eight birdies to bring home the day’s second-best card. “The best part was that it was a bogey-free round,” said Sharma, who is 9-under for 36 holes. “I drove much better than the first round and my iron play was on the spot. I found all fairways barring two.”

Austrian Matthias Schwab (67), playing in the last group, birdied the 18th to break away from a big pack and take sole lead at 12-under. Double defending champion, Justin Rose added a second straight 5-under 67 to get to 10-under and positioned himself well to make a charge for a historic third successive win. Five players are at 11-under. — PTI
