Chowrasia makes cut, three Indians fizzle out in Paris

SSP Chowrasia was the lone Indian to make the cut after carding a two-over 73 even as compatriots Jeev Milkha Singh, Jyoti Randhawa and Shiv Kapur fell by the wayside at Open de France Alstom golf tournament here.

Chowrasia, who carded a 69 in the first round, was tied 44th with a two-day total of 142 here.

Jeev, on the other hand, brought home a horrendous six-over 77, while Jyoti turned in a three-over 74.

Shiv also failed to sneak inside the cutline, which was decided at one-over, after bringing home a second successive one-over 72 in the second round on Friday.

Chowrasia's back nine spoilt his card as the Indian stumbled upon consecutive bogeys on 13th and 14th holes before hitting another bogey on the 17th.

His front nine was, however, studded with birdies at the first, fifth and seventh against a couple of bogeys at the fourth and eighth.

At the top, Rafa Echenique of Argentina blasted a four-under 67 to grab the lead, while there was a three way tie for the second place among German Martin Kaymer (72), Russian Charl Schwartzel (66) and Englishman Steve Webster (65).
