Sharma, who ended the first round with five birdies on his second nine, added nine birdies and a bogey on the second day to put himself in contention for the PGA Tour title. Anirban Lahiri incurred a two-shot penalty on Par-3 11th and scored a triple on the hole, as he scored 74 and is now 2-over 146 and T-73rd. Sharma, who played the back nine at the TPC Kuala Lumpur, which was very dry despite heavy rain on Wednesday, had three birdies in his first nine holes and then added six more birdies against one solitary bogey on second, which came after a wayward drive off the tee. He was on the edge of the water and he came out with a bogey and the penalty turned it into a triple. He had birdies on second, third and seventh, but a bogey on eighth saw him finish at 74 and two-over and T-73.
