With winds persisting for the second straight day,the one player who breezed through his second round was local boy Gaurav Pratap Singh.
His seven-under 65 in the Solaris Chemtech Open second round included eight birdies and one bogey,and it took him to tied second at seven-under 137,along with Arjun Singh.
My driving was really good today,but my putting was exceptional. I hadnt been doing well with the putter over the last few tournaments,but it has started to come good, Gaurav said.
M Dharma kept his lead at the Golden Greens golf club,his three-under 69 taking him to eight-under 136. The Bangalore golfer had a fairly interesting round that saw seven birdies and four bogeys.
Arjun Singh shot a two-under 70 to join Gaurav in second. Anirban Lahiri and Mukesh Kumar are a further stroke behind in tied fourth at six-under 138.
The cut came at four over 148,and former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja missed out by ten shots after he followed up Tuesdays 77 with a nine-over 81 in Round Two.
