11 January 2020: On an eventful moving day at the Hong Kong Golf Club, Rashid Khan emulated SSP Chawrasia’s effort in the second round, scoring 7-under 63 moving to T3 alongside Chawrasia. The two men are lying four strokes behind the leader Wade Ormsby, who is perched at the top, 13-under through 54 holes. Gunn Charoenkul is sitting in second at 11-under on the strength of a brilliant 65.

Rashid produced a blazing run of birdies at the turn to make his move on Saturday. After a pair of successive birdies at the fifth and sixth, he stumbled to a bogey at the ninth. But he remained unfazed, bouncing back in style, making four straight birdies to go six-under with five to play. He polished his card with an eighth birdie on the par-4 18th hole to end the day in T3.
