Gaganjeet Bhullar and Jeev Milkha Singh made the cut at the KLM Open at Kennemer Golf & Country Club today but Shiv Kapur missed out.

Bhullar, despite making 14 cuts in 22 starts, has not been able to find the form that saw him finish tied 10th at the start of the season in Abu Dhabi. He shot 69 with four birdies and three bogeys.
Jeev started with a double but pulled back with three birdies on fifth, seventh and tenth before giving a bogey on 11th. Birdies on 13th and 18th saw him squeeze inside the cut line in time. Kapur with 75 and 71 and just one birdies in either round missed out.
Pablo Larrazabal fired a course record 62 after starting his second round with six consecutive birdies to lead by two shots at the halfway mark of the KLM Open at Kennemer Golf & Country Club.
Larrazabal raced out the blocks with a front nine of just 28 shots, having started on the tenth tee, and although he could not keep that breathless pace going, he picked up three further birdies on the way in, with his only bogey of the day coming on the penultimate hole.
The Spaniard, who is chasing a second European Tour title of 2014 following his victory in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship in January, shaved a stroke off the previous course record shared by seven players.
Larrazabal is ten under par for the tournament, with Frenchman Romain Wattel and Italian Edoardo Molinari his nearest challengers on eight under par following rounds of 65 and 66 respectively.
Scotland's Richie Ramsay aced the 154 yard par three 11th hole - his second after starting on the tenth - with an eight iron on his way to a round of 65.
He shares fourth place with Denmark's Soren Hansen (66) and American Peter Uihlein (68) on six under par. Defending champion and home favourite Joost Luiten had led by one stroke overnight following an opening round of 65, but the Dutchman struggled on the greens en route to a level par round of 70 to stay at five under par, five shots back in a seven-way share of seventh position.
