Padraig did what he does best, in his second round of the Hero Dubai Desert Classic, he fought to the bitter end! With only a remote chance of making the cut, he produced a scintillating performance as he carded a seven under par round of 65. His only flaw on the day was a bogey on the par four 6th hole where he found a greenside bunker. It was the perfect lesson for all his fans out there as he was quoted afterwards as saying “I tried my best on every shot!” Onwards and upwards!
Padraig had a couple of days to forget as he shot a nine over par round after completing his opening round in Dubai. He has been struggling with a knee problem but it was his highest score recorded for many years. He will finish off round two on Saturday with the tournament now scheduled to finish on Monday!
Padraig continues his run on the European Tour with a visit to the Hero Dubai Desert Classic being played, as usual, at the Emerates Golf Course.
