Noida: Local favourite Gaurav Pratap Singh fired his second successive two-under 70 at his home course to grab the second round lead at the ONGC Masters golf tournament here today.

Gaurav now heads into the third round with a two-stroke
advantage at four-under 140, followed by Randhir Singh Ghotra,
Toran Bikram Shahi and round one leader Arjun Singh Chaudhri
who share the second spot at two-under 142.

In all, 55 professional made the cut which was set at
seven-over 151.

One-under at the turn, 25-year-old Gaurav dropped his
second bogey of the day on the 10th and signed off in a
similar fashion but birdies on the 12th, 14th and 16th meant
he still finished at the top.

"I`ve been striking the ball really well over last few
months but somehow I have not been able to shoot very low
numbers. In today`s round, I hit it well once again and also
hit it quite close and therefore was rewarded with a good
score," said an elated Gaurav, who is currently 35th on the
Aircel-PGTI Order of Merit, having posted four top-10s in the
current season.
