Quiban, Tabuena keep hot halfway leader in sight
Justin Quiban and Miguel Tabuena sustained their fine play, shooting one-under-par 71s to keep The DGC Open leader in sight heading into the weekend of the $750,000 Asian Tour event in New Delhi, India.
Quiban spiked his 35-36 round with an eagle 3 on the 18th and coupled with an opening 67, will take a 138 aggregate into the third round, just four shots behind hometown bet Seenappa Chikkarangappa, who returned a flawless 66.
Tabuena, meanwhile, gunned down three birdies in a 36-35 as he gets another solid shot at winning after slowing down in the final three rounds of the International Series Thailand last week.
The two Filipinos actually tied for the 22nd spot in Thailand after Quiban finished strong. Tabuena was tied for the lead after the first round with a bogey-free 64, but returned three straight 70s.
Angelo Que carved out a 68 to be nine shots behind Chikkarangappa, with LJ Go, the fourth Filipino in the field, also advancing after a 67 left him at 144.
Several players were still left on the Delhi Golf Club course at press time.
