Taiwan: A triple bogey failed to derail Jyoti Randhawa's campaign at the BMW Asian Open, as the gritty Indian hung on and battled back to card a three-over 75 on the second day of the golf championship at Taiwan. Randhawa's card was enough to keep him among the top 15 midway through the $1.5 million event which is jointly sanctioned by the Asian and European PGA Tours. But before overnight leader Randhawa struggled to find his way back after the triple on par-five 14th, which was his fifth hole of the day, Arjun Singh carded a steady two-under 70 to climb to tied sixth place at six-under 138. Randhawa, with rounds of 65 and 75, is now tied for 13th place. The field is led by Maarten Lafeber of Holland, who opened a four-stroke lead after two rounds. Lafeber breezed to his second straight six-under-par 66 in blustery conditions at Ta Shee Golf and Country Club and his 12-under 132 total gave him an edge over the field. The cut came at one-over 145 and among the Indians making it were Arjun Atwal and Vijay Kumar, both of whom had totals of 145. Atwal shot a 73 to go with his first round 72. Vijay had rounds of 71 and 74 on the two days. Missing the cut were Amandeep Johl, who had a total of three-over 147 (77 and 70) and Vivek Bhandari, who totalled five-over 149 (73 and 76). (PTI)
