Kapur crashes out of KLM Open

August 12, 2006 13:18 IST

Shiv Kapur was unable to effectively tackle the swirling winds, torrential rain and lengthy play interruptions and crashed out of the KLM Open with a second successive round of four-over 75 at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club in Zandvoort, the Netherlands.

He totalled eight-over 150 for the two days to miss out on the weekend action.

Soren Kjeldsen handled the challenging conditions well to register a second straight three-under 68 to be the clubhouse lead at six-under 138.

Delayed play meant not all players had finished their second round.

Kapur started on the back nine and had bogeys on 12th, 17th and 18th. On the front nine, he dropped a shot on the first but birdied the second and third. He closed with two more bogeys on eighth and ninth.

Two hours and 15 minutes were lost in the morning and a further one hour and 55 minutes in the afternoon.

Others near the top were Ireland's Damien McGrane (68) with a five under par total of 137, alongside one of the first round leaders, Anders Hansen of Denmark who finished his round of 72 at 9.10 pm local time.

Englishman Simon Dyson was even-par for the day and in tied seventh place while Thai ace Thongchai Jaidee was even-par for the second consecutive round to be in tied 45th spot.
