Jeev takes lead at Hero Honda Masters

Gurgaon:

Fulfilling commitments towards sponsors is one thing that Jeev Milkha Singh hasn't been able to do very well. India's most high profile golfer, playing his first tournament in India in more than a year, is sponsored by Hero Honda. But he hasn't been able to win a major tournament in India and more specifically the Hero Honda Masters, which is currently going on the outskirts of Delhi.A total of 22 countries are represented at this tournament, but after day two it was all India, with seven local golfers in the top ten. Jeev had a brilliant round of bogey free six-under par 65 with six birdies. Another Chandigarh golfer, Harmeet Kahlon, was also in contention after the half way stage. Kahlon was on a two-day total of 5-under par.The day and the tournament's best card of 7-under par 64 came from Vijay Kumar - a three-time Indian order of merit winner. He had a par round of 71 on Thursday.
