Stockholm: Indian golfers SSP Chowrasia and
Shiv Kapur turned in over-par cards of 73 and 75 respectively
but still managed to make the cut for weekend action after the
second round of the Nordea Scandinavian Masters golf
tournament here.

While Chowrasia was tied 38th with a total of even-par
144, Kapur was a couple of strokes behind his compatriot at
tied 66th.

It was a topsy-turvy day for Chowrasia, who sunk in five
birdies but ended up negating them with six bogeys.

One-under at the turn after sandwiching a bogey in
between his two birdies, Chowrasia played out a roller-coaster
back nine.

There were birdies on the 11th and 15th but bogeys on the
10th, 13th, 14th and 17th denied him an under-par card.

Kapur was even more off-colour as he managed just two
birdies against five bogeys.

Off the blocks with a birdie on the first, Kapur let it
slip thereafter and bogeys on the fourth, seventh and eighth
had him two-over at the turn.

Things didn`t improve much in the back nine either as he
ended up conceding two strokes against just one birdie, on the
15th.

Top of the table, Korean K J Choi (67) grabbed the lead
with a total of nine-under 135. Swede Richard S Johnson (66)
occupied the second spot a shot behind Choi.
