Palm Springs has its say

The challenging Palm Springs course in Batam showed its bite yesterday on the second day of the $30,000 Palm Springs-SPGA Series event.

Only five players of 62 managed to beat Old Man Par and three players registered 113, 115 and 117 on the tortuous par-72 course laced with tough, tricky greens.

By virtue of two under-par rounds (70 and 70), Johnson Poh holds the sole lead, two shots ahead of Choo Tze Huang (72) and Quincy Quek (71).

In the seniors' section, M. Murugiah was the only oldie to go below par (70) and leads by three over overnight leader Poh Eng Wah (75) on 143.
