Earlier, the course was nearly grilled to perfection once again for Emiliano but a final-hole bogey left a sour taste to the mouth as the famished Grillo headed for lunch.

Things have happened in a hurry at the Hero India Open, where it looked like Argentina's Emilio Grillo was going to be given an easy ride at halfway.

Sharma now tops the European Tour's Race to Dubai after victories in the Joburg Open and Maybank Championship and finished ninth in the WGC-Mexico Championship on Sunday after leading by two shots heading into the final round.

Emiliano Grillo had a two stroke lead after the opening round of the Hero Indian Open was suspended due to darkness on Thursday. Sharma claimed to have not seen the leaderboard as he started his round, but regardless, went about restoring some home pride.

Indian golfers have won 12 of the last 26 renewals and I fancy that could soon be 13 from 27.

Searching for his first European Tour victory, Grillo started and finished his round with birdies and had six more in between at the tough DLF Golf and Country Club. "I got lucky that we didn't have traffic". "I knew I had momentum on my side and was playing well", Sharma said. "The second shot to the 10th was crucial to my round". I followed Dave Tindall in with his each-way pick, Andrew Johnston, and he's playing some lovely golf.

It also would require schools to train students and school employees on how to respond to an emergency situation. Courtlin Arrington was preparing to graduate in May and had been planning to pursue her dream to become a nurse.

That clicked something inside Sharma and he proceeded to take the rest of the Gary Player-designed layout apart for a back nine of 6-under par 30.

Sandhu scored four birdies against a bogey on the 14th to share the seventh spot with Scotland's Marc Warren.

Two days after receiving a special invitation to play in the Masters at Augusta, Shubhankar Sharma had wildly contrasting nines but recovered for a 1-over 73 on his home course. That was why, I chose to go for the green (on 18).

The 21-year-old from Chandigarh, who made his way to the top of the order of merit in Asian and European Tour after clinching the Joburg Open and Maybank Championship, rated his round as one among his top 5 so far. I'm very happy with the way I played.

"If you told me I would be seven-under-par going into the weekend after being five-over-par on my opening nine holes yesterday, I would just have laughed".

I knew about the course record so I went from it. "I've done well over the past two days and I can't ask for more", the Argentine said.

Sharma, now ranked 66th, also leads the Race to Dubai on the European Tour. It could turn out to be a battle royale between the two at the weekend.
