Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour's Palm Resort Championship on a day that saw the event reduced to 54 holes-BAD WEATHER IS THIS ELNINA AFTER ELNINO?.

Chia moves into two-shot lead with event reduced to 54 holes

Danny Chia shot a second round eight-under-par 64 today to take the lead in the Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM) Tour's Palm Resort Championship on a day that saw the event reduced to 54 holes.

With the weather wrecking havoc at Palm Resort Golf & Country Club in Johor for three days running, the organisers declared that the RM200,000 event would be completed tomorrow - on the fourth day.

Today saw the second round being completed, following the premature end to yesterday's action when play was called off in the afternoon, with several flights still complete their second rounds.

Chia's second round had eight birdies in it and that left him on 14-under-par 130, with a two-shot lead and a round to go.

Sweden's Oscar Zetterwall was second on the leaderboard following a 65. He was alone on 132 with Thailand's Jakraphan Premsirigorn and Sutijet Kooratanapisan joint third, another stroke back on 11-under 133.

Teenager Suradit Yongcharoenchai, also of Thailand, carded a 64 of his own and was fifth on 134 - having climbed from 28th place overnight. 
Pleased with his performance today, Chia said: "I played well after I returned to complete my second round this morning. 

"The course has been set-up in such a way that there are many scoring opportunities out there and I took advantage of it. 
"It's always nice to shoot a bogey-free round and I'm playing consistently well at the moment, and that nice too."

 Looking ahead to third and final round, Chia added: "My goal has not changed and I hope to play as consistently as I can and hope also that the putts drop."
