Kapur makes the cut

Versailles: Shiv Kapur suffered two late bogeys in the second round, but was still the only Indian to make the cut at the Alstom French Open here.

Kapur, who recently finished 23rd at the US Open, followed up his first round 73 with a two-under 69 in second round to get to even par and tied 24th place after 36 holes.

Meanwhile, Jeev Milkha Singh (74-72) and Gaganjeet Bhullar (75-73) continued their struggle and missed the cut.

Kapur, who is hoping to land a late place in the British Open and also finish in the top-10 overall, had four birdies on the third, seventh, eighth and 10th holes and looked set to get close to top-10 to make a charge over the weekend. But bogeys on 16th and 18th messed up his plans.

At the top, American Kevin Stadler continued his dominance of the Open de France despite finishing his second round of 68 with a double bogey. (PTI)
