Rai moves to tied 12th; Ghei falters

Himmat Rai surged to the tied 12th spot with a brilliant five-under 66 but veteran Gaurav Ghei fell by the wayside after turning in a three-over 74 in the second round of the $300,000 Queen’s Cup golf tournament here on Friday.

Himmat’s card was studded with six birdies against a lone bogey and left his total at five-under 137. He played out a flawless front nine with birdies on the second, sixth and ninth hole to make the turn three-under.

Ghei, however, turned in a disappointing 74 to total seven-over 149 and miss the the cut for weekend action. Among other Indians, Anirban Lahiri (68) was tied 21st with a total of three-under 139. Rahil Gangjee (70) and C Muniyappa (70) shared the 43rd spot with totals of even-par 142.

At the top, Thailand’s Chinnarat Phadungsil charged into a three-shot lead after a superb six-under 65.
