Shubhankar sets course record with eight-under

Emiliano Grillo took a four-stroke lead at the Indian Open after shooting 4-under 68 on Friday in New Delhi.

Solid startThe exertions of last week, when he led the WGC-Mexico Championship after 54 holes, had resulted in a start which could charitably be called "slow".

A player of Grillo's obvious talent should be able to nudge it round for two days and maintain enough of a gap to take the title but there are all sorts of big numbers being racked up here this week (as was the case 12 months ago too) and I can still recall him leading the Africa Open with a round to go in 2014, when he opened up round four with a nine at the par four first! "I played lovely all day but it looked pretty average compared to my playing partner", he said.

"I had to play nearly ideal golf to shoot a seven under". "It was pretty similar but hopefully, I can find my putter a bit more tomorrow, like how it was on day one and with that, I can keep climbing up the leaderboard", the 2016 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year said.

By analysing the agent used in this case it may be possible to trace the country - or even the lab - in which it was made. On Thursday, the Home Secretary revealed a police officer who rushed to help is awake and talking in hospital.

Sharma, now ranked 66th, also leads the Race to Dubai on the European Tour. "I had about 168 yards to the hole and it landed like a feather just about a foot from the pin".

In the afternoon, however, a toast was raised to sole Indian hope Shubhankar Sharma who served up nine birdies on a platter. Today I hit plenty of fairways and greens. The 25-year-old, a contemporary of Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas in American college golf, had announced his stage on world golf when he won on his PGA Tour debut at the 2015 Frys.com Open.

"If you told me I would be seven-under-par going into the weekend after being five-over-par on my opening nine holes yesterday, I would just have laughed". "I just needed to put my foot on the pedal and keep on going". The stats suggest he's a good thing at the price and maybe he is but I'm never keen on taking odds-on about a golfer and I'm even less keen with still two rounds to go around such a devilishly hard course. In the morning, I told myself that I have momentum on my side. "I've done well over the past two days and I can't ask for more", the Argentine said. And he is not fretting about being in the final group of the third round in his national Open, which he considers the fifth Major for Indian golfers, despite the fact that a victory can take him inside the top-50 in world rankings. I'm going to wait and see what today brings but I have had a small top-up on Henrik Stenson at [100.0].

Further down the field, the ever-popular Andrew Johnston is T3 with Spaniard Pablo Larrazabal on six under, while a host of players are six back on five under.
