Munich: Jyoti Randhawa zoomed to tied 17th after a scintillating second round of six-under 66 as three Indians made the halfway cut in the BMW International Open golf tournament.

Kolkata pro SSP Chowrasia was the only Indian golfer to crash out after rounds of 74 and 71.

Among others, European Tour regular Shiv Kapur turned in a strong four-under 68 to rise to tied 34th with a two-day total of five-under 139.

Two shots behind at tied 48th was Jeev Milkha Singh, after rounds of 70 and 71.

Randhawa`s was an impressive outing with the lanky Indian dropping just one shot on the par-four seventh hole.

It was on the back nine that Randhawa struck gold, reeling off five of his seven birdies in this stretch.

Shiv Kapur also looked at home, the only exception being the 10th hole which cost him two strokes.

The Delhi golfer, however, responded well by nailing four of his six birdies in the back nine to sign a four-under card.

At the halfway stage, Welshman Bradley Dredge led the leaderboard at 13-under 131 after rounds of 64 and 67.

Trailing him from one stroke behind was Spaniard Pablo Larrazabal who carded his second successive round of 66.
