Atwal misses cut at Reno-Tahoe Open

Reno, USA:

Arjun Atwal's miserable run on the PGA Tour continued as he missed the cut at the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open after returning a four-over 76 in the second round.

The Orlando-based Indian, who has missed the cut in five previous events as well, bowed out with a total of 151 at the USD three million event.

In what turned out to be a topsy-turvy day for him, Atwal opened rather well with a birdie on the first hole.

But it went all downhill thereafter as he dropped three strokes in the space of five holes, with a birdie sandwiched in between, to make the turn one-over.

If the front nine was mixed, the back-nine was disappointing for Atwal.

After making pars until the 13h hole, he stumbled to back-to-back bogeys on the 14th and 15th.

A double bogey on the 16th followed and even though Atwal managed a birdie on the 18th, it was too little too late.

India-born Swede Daniel Chopra was tied 36th with a total of two-under 142 after returning a 70.

At the top, American John Rollins jumped into sole lead with a sensational 10-under 62 that took his total to 12-under 132.
