Terry Pilkadaris takes over the at the top of the Hero Indian Open leaderboard after 36 holes at Delhi Golf Club.
Terry powered his way to the top of the Hero Indian Open with a second round -8 under par 64, posting a -13 under par total, giving him a three shot lead over the field.
Veteran Australian Terry who has competed in 128 European Tour events and played over 100 times on the Asian Tour, is still seeking his first Tour win, but has stated that he feels very comfortable here in India;
“I’ve played about 40 rounds at least, we play in different times of the year here so the course plays differently every time we are here but it is just a matter of adapting.”
“It was good. I felt really good out there and I kept going at flags. Everything was feeling good and I kept going at them. I kept giving myself chances and it was nice to take advantage of them.”
“You’ve got to roll with it and try to step out of the way and not trip over your own feet. Just keep it simple.”
“You’ve got to keep it straight. If you are on the fairway then you can give yourself chances. That’s what you need to do out here.”
Indian player SSP Chawrasia, -5 under 67 today and Nacho Elvira from Spain, who carded -4 under 68 are tied in second place at -10 under par.
At -8 under par for the tournament are David Lipsky and Ben Evans.
Three-time Major Championship winner Padraig Harrington finished one stroke below the cut-line, which was set at par. Padraig returned a +2 over par 74 today, but I wonder if the Guinness from St Patrick’s Day had anything to do with that performance.
