It was another challenging day on the tight Delhi Golf Club layout at the Hero Indian Open. However, one man surged his way to the top of the leaderboard. That and more in today's day in numbers.
64 - Career low round from Terry Pilkadaris today. In 404 previous rounds on The European Tour, the Australian has never shot lower than 65.
129 - Pilkadaris' score after two rounds, enough for a three-shot lead and the new 36-hole scoring record at the Hero Indian Open.
5 - Pilkadaris missed five more fairways in round two and one more green in regulation than he did in his opening round (67), yet managed to shoot three shots lower.
5 - Wins already this season by Australians, more than in any other European Tour campaign.
72.02 - Stroke average on day two compared to 72.03 on the opening day. It may be under 7,000 yards but Delhi Golf Club still presents a (consistently) strong challenge.
67 - The score of both of SSP Chawrasia's rounds so far. The Indian is tied second with 36 holes to play having finished runner-up here last year in a play-off with Anirban Lahiri.
16 - Career starts at Delhi Golf Club for SSP, in which he has produced two wins, eight top fives and ten top ten finishes. Clearly, the 37 year likes what he sees here.
5 - Indians in the top 20 on the leaderboard. Indian players have won 11 events on The European Tour. Could it be number 12 this week?
2 - Lee Slattery's score on the 518-yard par five eighth hole today. It's his first albatross in 926 career rounds on The European Tour.
63 - Per cent of the field made birdie or better on the 518-yard par five opening hole today. It played to an average of 4.39.
8 - Birdies and an eagle for Paul Dunne today in just his 28th European Tour round. Only Pilkadaris made more birdies today. Dunne jumped 72 places up the leaderboard today, into the top 25, tied with Ajeetesh Shadhu for the biggest move of day two.
66 - From Rhys Davies. The Welshman opened with a round of 78 but carded seven birdies in a second round 66 to make the cut by one shot.
21 - Putts for Davies today.
74 - Players made the cut at level par or better.
5 - Bogey free rounds today. No one is bogey free for the week.
