‘15 champion wants to rekindle the victory flame

2017-08-11
If the rest of the week goes his way as well, Josh Geary could claim he already found a winning pattern of his game in China tour, that is the odd year presents his best chances.

The Yulong Bay Stop champion in 2015, the Kiwi showed his grit in the second day and took the lead with a majestic 64, I could had a opening birdie and missed it somehow, and the next 4 holes paid me back with 3 birdies and 1 eagle, which he made a 30 feet long putt.

Combined the 65 score yesterday, the total -13 for 2 days had leapfrogged Josh Geary into a joint leader with a tour veteran Mathew Perry, a briton who participated all 4 seasons of this China tour. 
Mathew , a sort of sad figure who almost held champion trophy twice only to fail in the last moment  in Beijing 2014 and ChongQing 2016,tied a course lowest score record with 61, set by Gunn in 2014. the difference was the par for the course was 72 and changed into 71 ever since. He fired 9 bridies and 1 eagle on the way of his historical performance, with the chipped in eagle in 5th hole.
The local hopefuls had a up and down for the whole day.
The co-leaders for the first day sensation She Zihan and Wang Xu gave the limelight to the retired solider Liu Chun, who was 2 strokes back after 1st round, and posted a surprising 67, and Xiao Bowen, who fired an even better 65. She Zihan returned with -2 for the round and his -9 was good enough to be tied with Xiao in the top 10, and Liu chun is in 7th positions.
It could be a huge breakthrough for the journeymanand Liu chun, who just resumed his regular practice after more than 20 days because of foot injury. His best finish was a tied 24th in last stop of the tour in Mountain Changbai. He started the day in the back nine and made birdie in 18th hole, the same hole he made eagle in 1st round.”it cheered me up and i felt good the rest way.”liu said.
First day non Chinese co-leader, Briton Alex Belt was just 1 stroke back with -12 total score.
After 36 holes in the bag, 72 players including 33 chinese made the cut.
