Greensboro (USA): Arjun Atwal`s title
defence at the Wyndham Championships came to an abrupt end as
he failed to make the cut after carding a two-over 72 in the
second round of the event .

Atwal, who last year became the first Indian to win on
the PGA Tour, had shot a 73 in the first round and ended his
campaign with a total of five-over.

Atwal had a topsy-turvy day with a bogey-bogey start on
10th, but he also had three birdies in a row from 15th to 17th
but again ended the first nine with a bogey on the 18th.

He double bogeyed the first and another bogey on sixth
meant he was three-over, but a closing birdie on ninth saw him
finish at 72.

Tommy Gainey shot a 65 in the second round to get to
12-under and take a three-shot lead. Jeff Quinney, with whom
Gainey shared the lead, dropped to 10th with a round of 70.

Ernie Els (66), Webb Simpson (65), Stuart Appleby (67)
and Daniel Summerhays (67) were at 131 in a four-way tie for
the second spot.
