Arjun Atwal's title defence at the Wyndham Championships came to an abrupt end as he failed to make the cut after carding a two-over 72 in the second round of the event here.

Atwal, who last year became the first Indian to win on the PGA Tour, had shot a 73 in the first round and ended his campaign with a total of five-over.

Atwal had a topsy-turvy day with a bogey-bogey start on 10th, but he also had three birdies in a row from 15th to 17th but again ended the first nine with a bogey on the 18th.

Tommy Gainey shot a 65 in the second round to get to 12-under and take a three-shot lead. Jeff Quinney, with whom Gainey shared the lead, dropped to 10th with a round of 70.

Jeev, Bhullar up
Celadana (Czech Republic):
Playing his first European Tour event this season, Gaganjeet Bhullar emerged as the best Indian at the midway stage by sharing the 32nd spot with a two-over 74 in the second round of the Czech Open.

Jeev Milkha Singh went to 75 and just about made the cut at two-over, while Shiv Kapur, who had a fine first round at 70, missed the cut with a 77 in second round at three-over.

Gangjee disappoints
Kansas (US):
