Kurt carded his consecutive -7 under 65 to lead the Afrasia Bank Mauritius Open by two shots at -14 under par;
“I started with a birdie and then just had a little blunder at two, I got back on track straight after so it was nice to bounce back after a double.”
“I’m driving it well, which is making it a lot easier. It’s a pretty big advantage to be able to hit shorter irons in. I’m feeling pretty comfortable.”
“I’ll stay the same over the weekend, still be aggressive. It’s gone well so far so I don’t want to switch things up too much.”
Seenappa Chikkarangappa from India holds second place at -12 under following his second round of -4 under 68, helped by some good putting;
“I started the round well, a par followed by a birdie. I just got a bit of bad luck on holes 14 and 15, where my ball got plugged in the bunker.”
“I told myself to hit more fairways and give myself birdie opportunities, and that was what I did from hole one.”
“I birdied the first hole and made birdies until hole five. That was an important run for me to get back to where I was yesterday.”
“I putted really well, made some solid putts on four and five.”
“There were some tough lines and I was able to read them. Overall, it was a good front nine.
“I’m looking at making my card look red. That’s the goal for this week.”
Victor Perez, -3 under 69 today, and Matthieu Pavon, -6 under 66, share third place at -11 under par, both players from France.
