Greensboro (USA):

Jeev Milkha Singh fired a scintillating six-under 64 in the second round to garb a share of the 12th but compatriot Arjun Atwal failed to make the cut before darkness suspended play in the Wyndham Championship golf tournament.

Jeev, who was left stranded at one-under on Friday, picked up seven birdies against a lone bogey to take his two-day total to seven-under 133 at the Sedgefield Country Club here.

Playing his back nine first, Jeev picked up a birdie at the 11th but a bogey on the 18th hole let him level-par at the turn.

On his way back, the Chandigarh-golfer went on a birdie firing spree and blasted as many as six birdies on the trot from second to seventh hole to finish the day on a high.

However, Atwal was not as lucky and even his improved card of three-under 67 couldn't save him as he missed the cut.

Atwal dropped a bogey on the very first hole followed by birdies on the fifth and eighth. But bogeys on the third and ninth hole meant he took the turn at one-over.

The Orlando-based golfer nailed birdies at 10th, 11th and 12th hole and also picked up shots at 15th and 16th before a lone bogey at the 14th.

Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra carded a one-under 69 to lie tied 43rd with an aggregate of 136.

At the top, American Chris Riley blasted seven-under 63 to share the lead with compatriot Rayan Moore.
