Jeev at tied 10th, six Indians miss cut at Hong Kong Open

Hong Kong, Nov 21 (UNI) Jeev Milkha Singh fired eight birdies as he carded an impressive seven-under 63 to be placed tied 10th while as many as six Indians missed the cut after the second-round of the Hong Kong Open here today.

Jeev had just one bogey today to take his two-day aggregate to six-under 134.

A 10th tee starter, Jeev birdied the 11th and 13th holes and ended with a birdie-birdie finish to make the turn at four-under.

On his backward journey, Jeev picked up a shot at the third and sank a hat-trick of birdies between the fifth and seventh holes before dropping the lone bogey in the eighth hole.

After a disappointing 71 in first-round, Jyoti Randhawa brought home an improved card of two-under 68 to climb to tied 46th, while compatriot Gaurav Ghei carded one-under 69 and was joint 61 with a total of even-par 140.

However, it wasn't a great day for the other Indians as Rahil Gangjee, who shot 68 in the first-round, had a disatrous day in the greens.

The Bengal golfer dropped as many as five bogeys against two birdies to total one-over 141 and missed the cut by just one stroke.

The other Indians who missed the cut were Arjun Atwal (69), Shiv Kapur (69), Amandeep V Johl (75), SSP Chowrasia (74) and Digvijay Singh (77) also missed the cut.

Louis Oosthuizen (62), Oliver Wilson (66), Oliver Fisher (65) and Chawalit Plaphol (66) are leading at the top position with an aggregate of eight-under 132.
