India's Jyoti Randhawa fired a second round 70 to be four off the lead and head the Asian Tour challenge at the WGC-HSBC Champions on Friday, saying the best putter would win the tournament.

Randhawa trails joint leaders Tiger Woods and Nick Watney with Taiwan's Lin Wen-Tang a shot behind him, alongside teenage Japanese superstar Ryo Ishikawa.

Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee, who played with Woods, remains in the hunt after a 69 left him six shots off the pace.

Other Asians didn't fare as well, with Korea's Major winner Yang Yong-Eun, the 2006 champion, nine behind the leaders.

India's Jeev Milkha Singh fired a 72 to go with his opening 73 and leave him 11 shots adrift.

Randhawa though is in with a chance and said that with the greens hard and the pin placements tough, whoever was running hot with the putter would win.

"I'm well focused and whenever I got the chance I took advantage of that and that was a good point today,” he said.

“Getting into a good position in two days, it does help you focus better.”
