The 26-year-old Thai fired five birdies at the Singha Park course in Khon Kaen to move level with Tony Carolan on nine under par.

"I'm very happy with my first two rounds. I'm back to form and I need to stick to my game plan of keeping calm. I need to remain focused and continue playing against myself and the golf course," Prom said.

"I really want to win because this event is so important to the Thai players. It will be nice to have the King's trophy in my cabinet."

First-round leader Carolan is struggling with elbow tendinitis but did enough to stay with his playing partner after hitting four birdies and just a solitary bogey.

"I couldn't make a birdie putt on the front nine but I entered the back nine with a little bit of confidence because I shot a couple of birdies there (on Thursday)," Carolan said.

"I'm in a good position for the weekend rounds and this is the sort of course that if you play well, you will shoot a good number and I plan on doing just that."

Jbe Kruger of South Africa is third at the tournament's halfway stage, while Thailand's Panuphol Pittayarat and Korean Mo Joong-kyung are level in fourth.
