Memphis: Arjun Atwal (74) suffered a steep fall down the leader-board but managed to make the halfway cut after the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic here.
Atwal, who was tied third after the first round, shot a second round four-over 74 and tumbled to tied 52nd, a fall of 49 places. Starting at the first with a bogey, he had three more on the front-nine — on fifth, sixth and ninth — to turn in four-over.
Further bogeys on 12th and 14th put him outside the cut-line but back-to-back birdies on 15th and 16th kept him alive for the weekend. He was one-over 141 and the cut came at 142.
Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy shot a five-under 65 to take the lead into the weekend. (PTI)
