Ashun carded a -5 under par 66 to keep control of the KLM Open with a -12 under total, and will take a three shot cushion into the week-end;
“I had a very good start today, after two birdies on the first two holes I knew that my good feeling from yesterday was still there and I felt I could go on and make a lot more birdies.”
“The wind came into play today and although it was not very strong it was still making it a lot more difficult.”
“I really like the golf course here and its design so I am really enjoying this week.”
“If the wind blows hard tomorrow it makes things very tricky for us but if it stays still then you will have to go out and keep being aggressive and make lots of birdies.”
Jonathan Thomson, England, fired a second round -7 under 64, starting with a birdie on the first hole via a 40ft putt, he claimed second place on his own at -9 under for the tournament;
“It was a phenomenal start really, I rolled in a 40-footer for birdie on the first.”
“It got a little bit trickier on the back nine as the wind got up a little bit and then I made a couple of silly decisions out there.”
“Having that front nine it’s inevitable as you can’t just be a robot for 18 holes.”
“I am hitting some great form and playing well, my confidence is also getting higher and higher and that’s all that matters to me at this part of the season.”
Li Haotong, China, -5 under 66 today, and David Drysdale of Scotland, a bogey free -6 under 65, share third place at -8 under par.
David said solid putting and good iron play were his strengths;
“My putting has been pretty solid too but it is my iron play that has really been the difference.”
