Bowen Xiao is local hero at Asian Championship
Xiamen, China, December 1: Local prospect Bowen Xiao tamed the windy conditions to sign for a commendable five-under-par 67 and grab a one-shot lead at the halfway stage of the KG S and H CITY Asian Golf Championship on Friday.
The 27-year-old Xiao, who is making his debut on the Asian Tour this week, took advantage of a solid front nine 32, highlighted by one eagle and two birdies, to sit atop the leaderboard on six-under-par 138 at the Kaikou Golf Club’s West course.
Namchok Tantipokhakul of Thailand credited his mental game as he took second place on his own following a battling 71 at the US$350,000 event, co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the China Golf Association (CGA) in China for the first time in nine years.
Australian Marcus Both, a two-time Asian Tour winner, sits three shots off the pace in third following a bogey-free 69.  Both, who is relishing the challenges of the golf course, credited his good performance to his accurate drives and approach shots.
