Chopra shot a 76 with four birdies, three bogeys, one double and a triple on the par-5 15th. He ended at four-over 148.
Meanwhile, Joe Durant shot a round of eight-under 64 with eight birdies to take a two-stroke lead. He was 12-under followed by Brett Wetterich (65).
Two-time US Open champion Retief Goosen shot a 3-under 69 and was in a bunch of seven players at nine-under 135.
Atwal has made only five cuts in 12 starts and missed seven in his last nine tournaments. Chopra has also struck a bad patch, having missed the cut in four of the last five events.
