Jeev misses cut at The Memorial
Dublin: Indian golfer Jeev Milkha
Singh`s poor run on the US PGA Tour continued as he missed
the cut at the Memorial Tournament after carding a second
successive two-over 74 in the second round of the event here.
Jeev, who had missed the cut at last week`s Crowne Plaza
International as well, ended with a total of four-over 148,
three strokes below the cut-line.
The Chandigarh-pro started off rather well by gaining
strokes on the second and fifth holes before his fortunes
nosedived. It all started with a seventh-hole bogey, which
left him one-under at the turn.
The back-nine was a disaster as Jeev dropped bogeys on
the 10th, 11th, 14th and 16th holes. A birdie sandwiched in
between was hardly of any significance as the Indian fell by
At the top of the heap, American Rockie Fowler zoomed
into sole lead after turning in a six-under 66 in the second
Fowler`s total of 13-under 131 put him three strokes
ahead of second-placed Justin Rose (69) of England.
