Gangjee cards 67, moves to tied fifth in Nationwide tourney

Miami (USA): Rahil Gangjee carded a second successive four-under 67 and rose to the tied fifth spot after the second round of the Nationwide Tour`s Miccosukee Championships here.

Gangjee, 17th after the first round, made a good move upwards and at eight-under he is in touch with the leaders.

Gangjee had a brilliant start with three birdies in first five holes starting from the 10th. He then picked up three birdies against two bogeys on the second nine for a round of 67.

Daniel Chopra (72), the overnight co-leader, dropped from the lead to be tied 11th. Chopra is 25th on the Money List right now.

Gangjee is currently 95th on Nationwide Moneylist and with just under USD 47,000, not even a winner`s cheque of USD 90,000 will get him into the top-25, who get the PGA Tour card next year.

But it will certainly get him into the top-60 who play the Nationwide Tour Championships in two weeks. The 60th place holder currently has just over USD 87,450.

Jason Kokrak, in the meantime added a five-under 66 to a first-day 63 to move into sole 36-hole lead. He is 13-under 129, a tournament record, and three better than Luke List (66) and Jonas Blixt (65), who are at 132. Brett Wetterich (68) is fourth at 133 heading into the weekend.
