Earlier in the tournament, Siddikur said, “I am so happy, especially because my short game was very good. I holed many long putts and that’s why I played so good and managed to make a better score. “I’m very fortunate that my short games have been very good and because of that I managed to score otherwise it is a very long course for me. I am playing quite good, I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do and I think everything is coming smoothly. “I am excited for the weekend and really looking forward to the weather being good.” After opening with a 70, the two-time Asian Tour winner, continued to stay close to the leaders by marking his card with eight birdies and two bogeys for a two-day total of eight-under-par 136.
