Taipei:

Kunal Bhasin gave himself a good chance to register his best finish of the season so far after he added a second round 73 to make the cut and position himself at 26th shot at the midway stage of the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship in Taipei on Friday.

Bhasin, who had a 72 on first day, is now one-over 145 for 36 holes but only six behind the leader - Malaysia's Khor Kheng Hwai (68) and Chinese Taipei's Chan Shih-chang (67) - both of whom are at five-under 139.

Chandigarh's Sujjan Singh, however, had a totally off day with just one birdie and nine bogeys in a round of 80 that sent him out after two rounds. He was 10-over for two days.

Bhasin, who had an eagle in the first round on the first, had another eagle on the second day on the par-5 tenth.

In fact, he was going great guns at three-under after 12 holes before he dropped four bogeys in the space of five holes from 13th to 17th and finish with a disappointing 73.

Khor Kheng Hwai served notice of his talent as he carded a four-under-par 68 to take a share of the second round lead.

Local player Chan Shih-chang had a closing eagle on the 18th hole to thank for giving him a share of the lead with Khor after he posted a two-day total of five-under-par 139 at the USD 300,000 full field Asian Tour event.

Thailand's Chapchai Nirat signed for a 71 for a tied third place alongside Lu Wen-teh and Lin Keng-chi of Chinese Taipei on matching 140s at the Linkou International Golf Club.

Defending champion Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand got his defence campaign back on track as he carded a 68 to stay two shots behind the leaders in equal sixth alongside Chinese Taipei's Chen Hao-sen, Chiang Chen-chih and Philippines' Mars Pucay.

Starting the day in tied-58th place, Thaworn made one of the biggest moves of the day by finishing in tied-sixth.

The halfway cut was set at four-over with a total of 66 players making it into the weekend rounds.
