It was a tough day for the Indians but Jyoti Randhawa kept his head up with an even par 72 to stay just three shots off the lead after a weather-hit second round at the Maybank Malaysian Open here on Friday.

Randhawa, six-under for 36 holes, was three shots adrift of joint leaders South Africans Hennie Otto (64) and Jbe Kruger (65).

Randhawa, playing in the morning when conditions were better and calmer, had a steady front nine with a one-under 35 but dropped bogeys on 11th and 14th, before a birdie on par-3 15th and then three pars saw him end the day at 72.

But things were not too good for other Indians. Jeev Milkha Singh, who was seven-under after first round, was two-over through 11 holes in the second round. He had just one birdie and three bogeys and was now five-under with five more to play.

Atwal struggles
South Carolina:
Arjun Atwal continued to struggle as he carded a five-over 76 to be placed tied 108th in the opening round of the RBC Heritage Golf Championships, here.

Atwal, who has made just one cut this season so far, had just one birdie against six bogeys as he struggles to stay afloat in the $5.7 million tournament.

Atwal bogeyed the third, fifth, sixth, seventh, 10th and 11th and his sole birdie came on the par-3 14th hole.
