Prom shares lead at Asia's King's Cup

THAILAND'S Prom Meesawat shot 71 to maintain his share of the lead with Rikard Karlberg in the second round of the King's Cup on Friday.

THAILAND'S Prom Meesawat struck a one-under-par 71 to maintain his share of the lead with Sweden's Rikard Karlberg, at eight under par, in the second round of the King's Cup on Friday.

Korea's Mo Joong-Kyung trailed a shot behind in third place after a 68 in the $1 million Asian Tour event at the Black Mountain Golf Club in Hua Hin.

A further stroke back was a group of six players including Australians Adam Groom (69) and Kieran Pratt (70).

Despite dominating play at the season-ending tournament, Prom remained cautious about his chances of victory.

"It's going to be a tough weekend as the door is still open for everyone. I just want to maintain my composure and get an under-par score for the next two days," he said.

Karlberg made a late comeback with two birdies in his last three holes to prevent home favourite Prom from taking the outright lead.

The Swede struggled under gusty conditions and was two-over in his second round after 12 holes, but a birdie on the 13th restored some confidence.

"It was a horrible round for 12 holes. I really struggled. I didn't play well and the putts didn't fall... But the wind came down the right way on 17 and 18 and I was glad I finished off well," said Karlberg.
