Rikard KARLBERG -5

Rikard Karlberg got off to a dream start in Round 2 with three birdies and an eagle after just four holes, and if it weren’t for a bogey - bogey finish then he would be leading. The 26 year old golfer from Sweden is driving the ball nice and straight and hitting lots of greens, and he is also scoring well across the different hole types (being the Par 3’s, Par 4’s and Par 5’s).
