New Delhi: Jyoti Randhawa shot his second straight round of 67 to climb to tied-third position at the mid-way stage of the US $ 500,000 Volvo Masters of Asia being played at the par-71 Bangkok Golf Club. Randhawa's tournament tally stands at eight-under 134 in the season ending event on the 2003 Asian PGA Tour. According to information received here, American Ted Purdy continued to lead with a five-under 66 following close on the heels of his course record-breaking opening round 62. Purdy's tournament aggregate of 14-under 128 was five strokes clear of second placed Austalian Unoh Park's tally of 133. Arjun Atwal, who created history on Monday by becoming the first Indian to qualify for the US PGA Tour, shot a two-over 73 to slip to tie d-55th place at two-over 144. He was accompanied at that total by another Indian Arjun Singh. Amandeep Johl shot his second successive round of 69 for the tied-22nd position at 138, while his fellow Chandigarh pro Harmeet Kahlon was tied-28th at 139. Atwal's arch rival for the Order of Merit title, China's Zhang Lian Wei shot a 69 to tie-32nd at 140, while Atwal's fellow US PGA Tour qualifier Daniel Chopra occupied the tied-49th position at 141.
