Emos in steady lead after round 2
Achimota based Emos Korblah may be keeping to his game plan that secured him a 2-under par for second place in the first round of the ongoing Vodafone Asantehene Open.
Emos shot 70 on round 2, same score for round 1. The only exciting difference is that, this time his aggregate score of 140 sits him right on top of the leaderboard on a 2-stroke lead. His play statistics in Round 1 included an eagle, a birdie and stream of pars.
This new development puts first round leader and defending champion, Vincent Torgah in a not-so-good 3rd place after he scored 2-over par on day two, an oddly sharp contrast from his 68 score on round one; the best so far at the Open.
The hitherto championship favorite is now in a dire situation to redeem himself going forward.
However, it doesn’t get any easier as other names like Kojo Barni, is keeping to his gun with a round 2 score of 71 that puts him in second place spot. The dynamism of round 2 scores has also dramatically vaulted Achimota based Vincent Coffie from 8th place on round one to fourth place after he shot 71 on round 2.
Prince Amponsah’s round 2 score of 2-under 72 places him in fifth place from his 17th position on round one where he returned 76.
21 pros made the cut going into the third round.
In the Men Scratch Division, Kwabena Poku closed off the second round in a classic fashion after he shot a 1-over 72; a 6-stroke difference from his round one score of 79. Maxwell Owusu-Bonsu shot 77 for second place after aggregating 152. In the third spot is Abubakar Nafiu with an aggregate score of 154.
15 players in the Men Scratch Division made the cut enroute the third round.
