Second round leaderboard:
DeChambeau had fun day on the course. World number five carded seven birdies, one eagle and three bogeys today. After the end of his round he said:
“I thought after yesterday getting it around not making a bogey was awesome, but today, even more impressive with three bogeys on the card to still shoot six under. I just felt uncomfortable, unfortunately, and consequently just I am not ball-striking my best. But hey, I’m not complaining one bit.”
Lucas Herbert is still looking for his European Tour victory. He was satisfied with his performance today and said:
“I knew I just had to take advantage of them (the back nine) straight out of the gate. I did that with an eagle-birdie-birdie start, and kind of just kept flowing. I was like seven under through about 11 holes, and it just felt like I was cruising. I probably left some out there to be honest.”
The defending champion Haotong Li shares 5th place and he is only two shots behind.
