Matt Wallace of England is alone at the top of the Volvo China Open leaderboard after 36 holes at Topwin Golf & Country Club.
Matt carded a second round -2 under 70 to stay at the top of the Volvo China Open leaderboard by just one shot with a total of -9 under par.
Matt mentioned the tough conditions today out on the course;
“It was tough all day, the wind picked up in the afternoon.”
“I was two under after eight holes and was just thinking we can get a couple more birdies on the back nine.”
“But the wind just picked up and I could not get it close enough.”
“There were a lot of guys on eight under par this morning and I tried to push on and widen the gap but the weather didn’t really allow me to score. Hopefully the weather will be kind.”
“I am playing nice golf so to be ahead with the tough conditions today is a nice feeling and I am going to bring that over to the weekend.”
A sizzling second round of -6 under 66, which included two bogey’s and a double put Sihwan Kim, USA, in a three-way tie for second place, with Jason Scrivener, Australia, -3 under 69 today, and Nacho Elvira, Spain who signed for second round -5 under par 67.
Nacho was very happy with his round, especially his putting;
“I got off to a very good start with four birdies in a row in the first six holes and then overall it was solid from tee to green and I made a few putts.”
“I think the putting stood out, I put a lot of work into my putting and I’m starting to roll them really well – my speed is much better than the beginning of the season so as a consequence of making better putts, I’m getting better scores.
