The lone bogey on the closing par-four hole notwithstanding, Jeev Milkha Singh carded an impressive four-under 66 to finish sixth after the halfway stage of the Enjoy Jakarta Astro Indonesia Open on Friday.

Fellow Indian Arjun Atwal turned in his second successive card of 67 to be tied 14th at six-under 134.

Rahil Gangjee (148) carded 74 while Amandeep Johl (151) returned 76 to miss the cut.

Unheralded Felipe Aguilar of Chile fired the day's best score of 62 for a 13-under par 127 total to take the lead in the USD 1.2 million co-sanctioned event between the Asian Tour and European Tour.

Prom Meesawat (63) and James Kamte (67) were trailing him from two shots behind.

Jeev had a blemish-free front nine that included a birdie quartet and he picked up one more shot on the 16th.

Just when he seemed signing off with a bogey-free card came the dropped shot on the final hole, where a huge crowd was surrounding the green.

Jeev, however, was still satisfied with his overall performance so far at the Cengkareng Golf Club.

"I just hit it to the right of the flag and there was a slope there. I tried to lag that putt but left it shot. However, that's alright. It's the only bogey against the five birdies that I've made today," Jeev said.

"It is definitely exciting to play coming into the weekend rounds. And that's exactly why we play- to get into these positions and try to do something come Sunday," Jeev said.

Atwal, a 10th tee starter, birdied the 16th but took the turn at even-par after the bogey on the 17th.

On resumption, the Orlando-based player made amends with birdies on the fourth, seventh and ninth to finish on a high.

Among other Indians in the fray, Shiv Kapur's (136) round of 67 pushed him up to tied 29th, while veterans Gaurav Ghei (67) and Jyoti Randhawa (70) share the 45th spot at 138.
