Abu Dhabi, Jan 22 : Jeev Milkha Singh recovered from his disastrous finish of first round to card a three-under 69 and come to two-under 142 for 36 holes in the Abu Dhabi Open here Friday.
Jeev, who was four-under for 13 holes before bogeying last five holes, said, "The game is there, but I guess I was rusty. It is a question of getting back into the rhythm and hopefully that will happen soon. Today was much better."
Shiv Kapur who shot a 68 on first day dropped to a 74 with two birdies, two bogeys and double bogey. Like Jeev he was tied for 56th at two-under.
Jyoti Randhawa (70-74) and SSP Chowrasia (72-72) were tied 86th at even par and were likely to miss the cut, which was looking at two-under.
The overall leader was Rick Kulacz of Australia, who shot a nine-under 63 and moved to 12-under 130. Kulacz had 11 birdies and two bogeys in his round. Three players Sergio Garcia (67), Peter Hanson (67) and Steve Lowery (65) were tied for second at 11-under.(IANS)
