Ashok Kumar takes over from Shiv Kapur

Special Correspondent

Amby Valley (Lonavala): Ashok Kumar is very keen to end the PGAI season with a bang. At the start of the Amby Valley PGA championship of India, Ashok made it clear he would pull out all stops to have a fitting finale. Ashok was one of the three golfers who shot five under 67 for the day and in the process went into a one-stroke lead over Shiv Kapur.

Shiv had the rub of the green against him as he ended the day with a par 72.

For overnight leader Shiv Kapur the day was eminently forgettable.

He was missing simple short putts and often cursing his poor shots. Shiv ended the first nine with a birdie and a bogey and the return journey too was marked with a birdie and a bogey.

In the amateur section, Pune's Jaideep Patwardhan should have submitted a card of five under but the pressure told on him as he missed easy putts.

He however had established a 15-stroke lead over Amit Nigam with his card of one under 71 for the second round.

The cut was applied at eight over and the top 50 made the cut. Amit Nigam, Neil Mundra and Mehul Rastogi are the three amateurs who will give a token challenge to Jaideep Patwardhan in the final two rounds.

The scores (after 36 holes): 1. Ashok Kumar 136 (69, 67); 2. Shiv Kapur 137 (65, 72); 3. Vijay Kumar 138 (70, 68); 4. Gaurav Ghei 139 (70, 69) and Shamim Khan 139 (72, 67); 6. Arjun Singh 140 (68, 72) and Amandeep Johl 140 (71, 69); 7. S.S.P. Chaurasia 141 (70, 71); 8. Harinder Gupta 142 (70, 72).

Amateurs: 1. Jaideep Patwardhan 143 (72, 71); 2. Amit Nigam 158 (81, 77); 3. Neil Mundra 164 (80, 84).
