Atwal slips but makes cut at Byron Nelson golf

other Updated: May 29, 2011 08:46 IST

Arjun Atwal slipped down the leaderboard to tied 29th with a two-over 72 but still managed to make the cut after the second round of the HP Byron Nelson Golf Championship.

Atwal, who looked set to improve on his first round placing of 20th, dropped a bogey on 15th and a double bogey on 18th hole.

Before that, he struck birdies on first and second and 10th. His bogeys in the front nine came on the eighth and ninth hole.

Ryan Palmer (65-67) and Sergio Garcia (66-66) shared the lead at the halfway stage.

Palmer and Garcia shared the second-round lead at eight-under 132 after a sun-soaked round when the wind was gusting up to 36 mph.

Garcia posted his second consecutive four-under 66. Garcia withdrew after five holes in a British Open qualifier earlier this week and passed up a practice round at TPC Four Seasons because of an infected fingernail on his left hand.

Tim Petrovic (66) and Scott Piercy (69) were three strokes back at five-under.
