A three-way tie at the top emerged after a rain-interrupted round two of the Toyota Tour Championship at Saujana Golf and Country Club.
Thailand’s Witchayanon Chothirunrungrueng (69, 70), American Jeremy Wendelken (71, 68) and Khalin Joshi of India (68,71) currently share the clubhouse lead at five-under-par.
With round two of the joint Asian Development Tour (ADT) and domestic Toyota Tour event canceled for the day, a total of 51 players will resume play at 7:15am tomorrow.
Leading the Malaysian challenge and trailing the lead by one is 39-year-old Khor Kheng Hwai. Despite facing challenges on par 3s and off the tee, Khor, who has consistently carded 70s in the first two days, remains steadfast in his game plan for the upcoming rounds.
“I haven’t been scoring the par 3s well and struggling a little off the tee, but I’ll be committing to my current game plan even going into the final two days,” said Khor who hails from Penang.
First-round leader Suttinon Panyo of Thailand was among the players who did not manage to complete their second rounds, as the Thai is currently nine-under-par overall after 12 holes. Meanwhile, recent Alphard Cup winner Galven Green is eight-under-par overall after carding in four birdies through 12 holes as well.
The current projected cut-line for the penultimate event of the Toyota Tour is currently one-over-par overall.
