Atwal cards three-under to move to 31st spot

Atwal has a two-day total of four-under 140, while Jeev is two-under 142 overall.
Orlando-based Atwal played out a roller-coaster front nine which he opened with a birdie.

A bogey on the second hole followed by another on the fourth pegged him back before Atwal recovered to gain a shot on the fifth.

But a dropped stroke on the ninth left him even-par at the turn.
On his way back, Atwal went on a birdie-firing spree, sinking in five in the space of seven holes to end the day on a high.

Jeev, meanwhile, picked up a bogey and a birdie in his largely subdued round.
At the top, American Vaughan Taylor led by a stroke after a second successive 67 took his total to 10-under 134.

Randhawa slips

Jyoti Randhawa’s form fluctuated as he turned in an even-par 72 to slip to the tied 33rd spot while Shiv Kapur continued to struggle carding a 74 to be tied 142nd after the second round of Alfred Dunhill Links golf championship here.

Randhawa, overnight tied fourth with an opening round of 67, sank in three birdies and an equal number of bogeys in the second round to total five-under 139.
Kapur, on the other hand, is unlikely to make the cut, to be decided after the third round, with a total of three-over 147 so far.

Randhawa was off to a steady start as he parred three holes before picking up his first birdie on the fourth. But a bogey on the seventh hole left him even-par at the turn.
The seasoned pro’s back-nine comprised bogeys on the 10th and 18th with birdies sandwiched in between on the 12th and 14th holes.

At the top, Rory McIlroy fired a seven-under 65 to earn a share of the lead with fellow Northern Irishman Michael Hoey (66) and Scot Richie Ramsay (66).
The trio is 11-under overall so far.
