Aadil is 9-under, 135 which is clear by 11 stroke who is at 146 (73,73) after the close of Day 2.

Aadil said, “it was tough condition at link golf course with cold and foggy day. The tee off was delayed by four hours. But course is playing very beautifully. From last 10 rounds, I am able to shoot under pars consistently. Working with my coach Jesse Grewal and with my new mentor Bob Byman is helping me a lot. I hope to convert this match is one of my best golf this year in next 2 days. Only one match -- All India Final at ITC Classic next week -- is left after this before All India merit will finalised. I have only played six matches so far out of 11. For merit minimum eight matches are required. At present I am holding the 3rd position in IGU Merit list of A category, but my ranking will improve in next 2 matches.”
