Kapur tied seventh; Bjorn takes lead

Singapore, Nov 11, 2012, PTI:

Shiv Kapur led a bunch of five Indians into the money rounds even as four others fell by the wayside at the Singapore Open, here.

Kapur (68) was four-under 138 and five strokes behind the leader Danish Thomas Bjorn (67). Kapur (68) ploughed his way through hot and humid conditions even to play a full round at one stretch. Five-under at one stage, he suffered a bogey on 16th to be 4-under 138 in tied seventh after 36 holes.

In the morning, SSP Chowrasia (69) and Anirban Lahiri (68) negotiated the remaining holes from Friday’s partial appearance in second round to reach 36 holes in three-under 139 and in tied 11th place.


Also making the cut were Gaganjeet Bhullar, playing his 11th week in a row, and Jyoti Randhawa. Bhullar was two-under 140 and tied 21st and Randhawa struggled through 72 to be one-under 141 in tied 36th place.

Himmat Rai (69-75) slumped to a triple on par-4 sixth but at that stage he also had two birdies. On the back nine, he had three bogeys and no birdies to finish two-over and crash out as the cut fell at one-over 143. Chiragh Kumar (73-72) missed the cut and so did Shamim Khan (73-73) and Digvijay Singh (74-73).

Big Dane Thomas Bjorn added 67 to his first 66. He leads by two over George Coetzee (72-63) and Chris Wood (70-65). Phil Mickelson rallied with a three-under 32 on back nine to squeeze inside the cut with rounds of 73 and 70.

Rory McIlroy, accompanied by tennis superstar girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki, played 70-70 to be tied 26th.
