Shubhankar Sharma makes the cut at South African Open golf


Indian golfer Shubhankar Sharma’s three-over after two rounds was just enough to earn him a place in the weekend rounds at South African Open golf.

India’s Shubhankar Sharma, on Friday, was among the final batch of golfers to make the cut at the South African Open being played at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City.

Shubhankar Sharma’s score of three-over 147 after the first two rounds was just enough to place him tied-64 and keep the 24-year-old just above the cut off line.

On the opening day, the two-time winner on the European Tour sunk a birdie in the par-four fourth hole but was pegged back by bogeys on the fifth, eighth, 13th and 14th holes.

Sharma recovered a shot with another birdie on the final hole of the back nine to end with two-over 74 in the first round.

The second round saw Shubhankar Sharma, who missed the cut at the Alfred Dunhill Championship last week, sink three birdies against four bogeys to finish with a one-over 73 in the par-72 course on the second day.

With the cut set at three-over, the Indian golfer did just enough to ensure participation in the weekend rounds.

South African Open leaderboard

At the halfway stage of the South African Open, former Ryder Cup winner Jamie Donaldson of Wales and the in-form Christiaan Bezuidenhout of South Africa share the lead with scores of ten-under 134.

The top duo will go into the weekend rounds with a two-shot advantage over the chasing pack, led by home favourites Dylan Frittelli and Dean Burmester – both of whom are on eight under.
