He fired in two bogeys in addtion to 6 birdies. If he managed to avoid 1 of those bogies, he'd be equal 8th. I am hoping he ends up in the top 10 in this tournament. I am sure he is thinking top 3.
He is the forefather of our golf, like Niaz Morshed was in Chess for South-East Asia. Let's hope he is a much greater success story...wouldn't be bad finishing ahead of Phil Mickelson. Still very early, but he's bankable.
