Jecheon: Himmat Rai and Chiragh Kumar failed to make the cut after poor second rounds, drawing the curtains on India`s challenge at the inaugural Volvik Hildesheim Open J Golf Series.

Himmat added a second straight 73 to miss the cut by two shots while Chiragh who opened the tournament with a 71, shot a nightmarish 81 in the second and crashed out.

Meanwhile Asian Tour rookie Javi Colomo of Spain posted a three-under 69 to share the third-round lead with five players that included 13-time Asian Tour winner Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand and Brazil`s Adilson Da Silva at the Hildesheim Country Club today.

Overnight leader Mo Joong-kyung of Korea is a single shot back of the leaders after he signed for a 73 to take a share of the seventh place alongside Thailand`s Pariya Junhasavasdikul and Thanyakon Khrongpha as well as compatriots Ma Soo-kil, Byun Jin-jae and Kim Dae-hyun at the USD 300,000 event that is jointly sanctioned with the Korean Golf Tour.
