Bhullar zooms to T2
Singapore: Gaganjeet Bhullar brightened up a gloomy day with a brilliant five-under 65 to grab a share of the second spot in the weather-disrupted second round of the $400,000 Handa Singapore Classic here on Friday.
Bhullar's 65, which included six birdies and an eagle against just one bogey, took his total to 12-under 132, six strokes behind leader Peter Karmis (63) of South Africa.
Among the other Indians, SSP Chowrasia also carded a seven-under 65 and was a stroke adrift of Bhullar at tied sixth. With darkness leading to an early end to the proceedings,19 players were left with incomplete second rounds. Play was delayed for two hours earlier in the morning due to lightning and Bhullar said it was not easy to acclimatise to the course and conditions.
Chowrasia, who struck eight birdies against just one bogey on the final hole, said it was a relief to sign a low card after weeks of indifferent form on the European Tour and credited the rediscovered form to his new putter.
