He has made four birdies each round, but made one less bogey on the second day. Choo was also even through the first 18 holes, but had a rough second day, which saw him double-bogey the seventh hole. He finished strong, however, with consecutive birdies on the eigth and ninth holes before calling it a day.
Canada is currently 17th in the standings at even par, while Singapore is tied for 27th at 7-over. Scotland and the United States are tied for the lead at 17-under.
