Chia, Sasidaran Keeps Malaysian Hope Alive

Danny Chia

KUALA LUMPUR, March 5 (Bernama) -- Malaysia's number one golfer, Danny Chia remained upbeat at the Maybank Malaysian Open held at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club after shooting a one-under-par 71 on Friday.

Malaysia's best performer yesterday, M. Sasidaran had a one-over-par 73 to lie alongside Chia on two-under-par 142.

When met after completing his second round, Chia admitted that he needed to improve on his iron play to move up the leaderboard.

"I did not really control my iron shots this week and hit quite a lot of bad shots with my irons. I am lucky to get away with that," said Chia, who was last year's halfway leader.
