Muniyappa tumbles; bad light stops play

Veteran Jyoti Randhawa withdrew after his nightmarish opening round of 77, while it was the end of the road for Muniyappa (145), Kapur (146) and Himmat Singh Rai (146), who fell outside the cut set at 144.

Two-time winner Arjun Atwal, who had opened his campaign with an even-par 72, was at provisional 15th place at three-under, with five more holes to go in his second round.
Joining him was Kolkata pro SSP Chowrasia, even-par after just two holes.

Digvijay Singh was going two-under overall with 16 holes to go. Rising star Gaganjeet Bhullar (143) carded one-under 71 to lie tied 39th.

Jeev tied 43rd

At Palm Beach Gardens, a sub-par card eluded Jeev Milkha Singh, who teed off his campaign in the Honda Classic with a nervy one-over 71 to lie tied 43rd after the opening round of the $5.6 million event.

Australian Nathan Green and American Michael Connell fired identical seven-under 65s to grab the opening-round lead with the trio of Alexandre Rocha, Oliver Wilson and Camilo Villegas trailing them by one.
