Celadana (Czech Republic): Playing his first
European Tour event this season, Gaganjeet Bhullar emerged as
the best Indian at the midway stage by sharing the 32nd spot
with a two-over 74 in the second round of the Czech Open.
Jeev Milkha Singh went to 75 and just about made the cut
at two-over, while Shiv Kapur, who had a fine first round at
70, missed the cut with a 77 in second round at three-over.
The cut came at two-over.
Bhullar had a terrible opening with three bogeys in the
first four holes. A birdie on the fifth was followed by a
bogey on sixth.
He turned in 39, but had two birdies and one bogey on
back nine for a total of 74.
Jeev had three bogeys, a double bogey and just one
birdie in his 75. Kapur had five bogeys, a double bogey and
just two birdies in his 77 and missed the cut.
Sweden's Mikael Lundberg moved into a share of the lead
with Jose Manuel Lara on seven-under. Lundberg, who lost his
playing card last season, has been playing on The Challenge
Tour in 2011.
Lara, after a first round 69, signed for a four-under 68
to advance to seven-under at Prosper Golf Resort. Lundberg
shot a second straight 68.
