Scotland's Richie Ramsay birdied four of his closing five holes as he raced into a three-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Indian Open yesterday.

Ramsay, who had shared the overnight lead after the opening round, fired a second successive five-under-par 66 for 10-under-par 132 at the $1.25 million Asian Tour event in southwest India.

Thai duo Panuphol Pittayarat and Chapchai Nirat and Jaakko Makitalo of Finland returned with matching 68s to stay within touching distance of Ramsay.

Indian star Gaganjeet Bhullar led the local charge with a round of 69 for tied sixth position and is five shots off the pace at the Karnataka Golf Association course.
