Atwal slips to tied 4th at Boise Open

Boise, USA:

Arjun Atwal found the going tough in the second round of the Albertsons Boise Open as he carded a three-under 68 to slip two positions down to tied fourth in the Nationwide Tour.

Overnight tied 2nd, Atwal aggregated eight-under 134 to hang around for the weekend action in the Hillcrest Country Club here. He was sharing the fourth sport with five others.

A 10th tee starter, Atwal was off the block with a bogey but a couple of birdies at the 16th and 17th hole saw him make the turn at one-under.

On his way back, Atwal stumbled again at the first hole but the Orlando-based golfer held his nerve and followed it up with a birdie brace and picked up a shot again at the seventh.

At the top, American Bill Lunde blasted at six-under 65 to take his tournament total to 11-under 131 to grab the lead and stay two strokes adrift of compatriots Spencer Levin and Tag Ridings who carded an identical 5-under 66.
