Randhawa makes cut; McIlroy fails

Hong Kong, Nov 16, 2012, PTI:

Jyoti Randhawa was the lone Indian to make the cut even as world No 1 Rory McIlroy and three-time Major champion Padraig Harrington fell by the wayside in the $ 2 million Hong Kong Open, here on Friday.

Randhawa, who had shot 68 in the first round, followed it up with a second round 70 and his total of two-under 138 at the par-70 Hong Kong Golf Club saw him placed tied 20th.

Himmat Rai (68-75), Shiv Kapur (69-75), Gaganjeet Bhullar (71-76) and S S P Chowrasia (76-72) missed the cut, while Digvijay Singh and Chiragh Kumar withdrew after first round cards of 80 each.


Except for Randhawa, it was disaster out there for the Indian golfers, but none will rue it more than Shiv Kapur. Had he made the cut, he would have earned the 2013 European Tour card for himself as he is placed 129th and the top-119 expected to get the rights.
