Atwal tied 22nd, Jeev misses cut at Texas Open

May 16, 2010 19:38 IST

Arjun Atwal returned a subdued even-par 70 to slip to tied 22nd but it was curtains for Jeev Milkha Singh as he missed the cut despite an improved show in the second round of the Valero Texas Open golf tournament in San Antonio, Texas.

Atwal's two-day total stands at three-under 141 after he found a birdie and a bogey in the second round, which was suspended by a day due to bad weather.

After remaining even-par in a blemish-free front-nine, Atwal found his first and only birdie of the day on the 10th hole. But a bogey on the 13th left him even-par for the round.

In contrast, Jeev, who fell short of the cutline by just a stroke, endured an eventful day.

Jeev struck two birdies against one dropped shot in the front nine to make the turn one-under.

The back-nine turned out to be a disappointing one as he stumbled to two bogeys and a double bogey against just one birdie to drop out of contention.

At the top, it was a four-way tie for the lead with Matt Jones (71), Brett Wetterich (68), Jimmy Walker (67) and James Nitties (67) having totals of seven-under 137 after two rounds.
