Bhullar, Chopra struggle

Gaganjeet Bhullar suffered a big slump at the start of the back nine with four bogeys in five holes and ended up with his worst card of the week at two-over 74 to finish tied 59th at the Joburg Open at the Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club, here on Sunday.
He came down from his overnight 51st place after a score of 71 in the third round.

Bhullar finished with rounds of 71, 67, 71 and 74 to be four-under 283. Bhullar played his second round at the par-71 West course and the other three rounds at par-72 East Course. In the final round, Bhullar birdied the first, just as he had in third round, but like the third round, he bogeyed the third to drop back to par. He birdied the sixth and eighth and dropped a bogey on seventh. Then he bogeyed ninth, 10th and 11th and 12th and the consolation was a birdie on 18th for a 74. Bhullar was the lone Indian in the field.
Chopra out

Meanwhile, Daniel Chopra ended a miserable week with a four-over 76 at the Spyglass Hill course at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at California on Sunday
Chopra, whose first two rounds were 70 and 79 at Monterrey and Pebble Beach Links, missed out the 54-hole cut and crashed out. At the top, Jimmy Walker tamed the strong winds and shot four-under 67 at Monterrey Peninsula Links and grabbed a six-shot lead with one round to go. Walker, who took 187 starts before a win, now has a chance to grab his third in last eight starts.

Walker was at 13-under 202, while Tim Wilkinson of New Zealand carded 69 and Hunter Mahan (72) were at 208.
