Shubhankar Sharma leads the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship at the halfway point.

Sharma was incredible today posting a -5 under par 66 and jumping to a 2 stroke lead over 3 strong contenders…….

Xander Schauffele, Rafa Cabrera Bello, & Sergio Garcia. These 3 super stars only see 36 holes to play, and aren’t concerned about a 2 stroke lead by Sharma.

Sharma is a bright star from India. He grew up admiring the likes of Arjun Atwal and Anirban Lahiri. These 2 guys really helped to put India on the golfing map.

Now Sharma is following in their footsteps and quite frankly is an amazing player!

Sharma started his round with an eagle 2 on the par four 1st hole.

He hit a 320 yard drive to within 2 feet and drilled it for an eagle.

That must have gotten him a little shook up because he bogeyed the next 2 holes…….an eagle can do that to you.

He parred the next 7 holes in a row and then hit the birdie train. Birdie, birdie, par, par, par, and then birdies the last 3 holes to show he can finish strong.

It’s going to be a long weekend if people don’t sink a lot of birdies. He seems to just now be getting hot.

Only 2 guys were able to get to -6 today and that was Sergio Garcia and Kyle Stanley.

Sergio had a clean card today with 2 birdies on the front and an eagle and 2 more birdies on the back nine.

He seems to have found it and with his game the momentum may push him strongly into the Masters to defend his title.

Yesterday’s leader, Louie Oosthuizen could only score an even par 71 today and he is 4 behind our leader Sharma.

Louie was hanging right in there with his picture perfect golf swing when he tried to hit the par 5—-6th hole in two and his second fell short and went into the water.

He will have it going on this weekend though. Never count him out!

This is a unique tournament as there are only 64 players and not weekend cut.

Nobody has go go home early and it does take some of the pressure from them.

Stay tuned with all the super stars in this field you never know what will happen.
