Rookie Khalin Joshi and Rashid Khan, who has virtually grown up at the Delhi Golf Club held the spotlight as the SAIL-SBI Open presented by Incredible India, Ministry of Tourism reached the halfway stage on Thursday.
Joshi followed up his first 66 with a steady three-under-par 69 to take the lead at the end of the second round. As the sun set down on the DGC, Joshi was joined in the lead by American-Korean Chan Kim (67-68), who finished with a flourish, with four birdies in a row over the last four holes.
Joshi and Kim were one shot ahead of Rashid (72-64) and Bangladeshi Siddikur (68-68), while there was a big bunch at six-under and five-under. Siddikur, second at SAIL-SBI Open in 2011 was second again at Panasonic Open in 2012, is looking at improving that to the top spot.
