Atwal shoots 66 in second round moves up leaderboard

Pebble Beach: Indian golfer Arjun Atwal rediscovered some lost form with a four-under 66 in the second round to make the weekend cut of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am here.

The Indian, who made his US Open debut at the same club, shot the 66 at the Monterrey Peninsula Country Club, one of three courses that is used for the event.

Following his disappointing 75 in the first round at Pebble Beach Links on the first day, he is now one-under and at tied 62nd, up from overnight 117th.

The cut at this special event, where amateurs are paired with the pros, comes after 54 holes and only top-60 and ties make the final round at the famous Pebble Beach.

On the second day, Atwal, starting on tenth, had birdies on the 12th, 15th and 16th, but dropped a shot on the 18th.

On the second nine, he had birdies on the fifth and sixth.

Steve Marino added a 66 to his first round 65 to be 13-under 141 and lead DA Points by four shots. Points had rounds of 63 and 70.

There is a large group at seven-under and it included Padraig Harrington, who played with Marino.
