Atwal misses cut in Livermore

Livermore:

Arjun Atwal's inconsistent form continued with the Orlando-based Indian failing to make the cut in the $600,000 Livermore Valley Wine Country Championship here.

After his opening round of 73, an equally average round would have kept him for the weekend action but Atwal stuttered to a horrendous 10-over 82 to crash out with a 36-hole total of 155.

The cut line was set at 147, which means Atwal would still have been in contention if he could manage 74 in the second round.

Barring the lone birdie on the eighth hole, it was a horror story for this season's Malaysian Open champion.

Atwal got off to a disastrous bogey-double bogey-bogey start and dropped shots on the sixth and ninth holes as well to take the turn at five-over.

On his way back, it was more or less the same story for Atwal.

As if a bogey hat-trick from the 12th-14th holes was not enough, he signed off with back-to-back bogey to complete the ordeal.

Overnight leader J J Killeen (69) consolidated his grip on the lead with a two-day total of 134, five shots clear of Aron Price (69) and Joe Daly (70).
