Rahil Gangjee nearly put himself out of the tournament with three bogeys in a row on the front nine but made a stunning come back over the last 10 holes to squeeze inside the cut line at the Wichita Open.

Gangjee carded one-under 70 with the help of four birdies on the back-nine and at four-under 138,he was placed tied 56.

He just made the cut,which came at four-under 138.

Gangjee,whose 68 gave him tied 31st place in the first round,bogeyed the fourth,fifth and sixth,but a birdie on ninth saw him gain confidence at the turn.

He then birdied the 11th,14th and 18th,the last one being the real life-saver as he extended his stay for the week.

Jim Herman,who missed the cut at last week’s US Open added a 64 to the first round 66 to take lead in the tournament at the Crestview Country Club.

Herman’s bogey-free 12-under 130 for the first 36 holes gave him a two-shot lead over Joseph Bramlett and Robert Damron,former winner on PGA Tour.

Six players including first round leader Casey Wittenberg (70) are at nine-under 133 and three off the leader.
