Jeju Island, Korea, Mar 14 (UNI) Ace Indian pro Jeev Milkha Singh shot an awesome bogey-free 66 to grab a share of the second place along with Sweden's Johan Edfors at the end of day two of the Ballantine's Championship here today.

Jeev currently trails the leader, Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell by two strokes. The next best Indian in the field is Jyoti Randhawa at tied 19th.

Forty eight golfers could not complete their second round as a result of the two and a quarter hour morning delay due to high winds at the Pinx Golf Club.

Jeev Milkha Singh (68, 66) took his overall score to ten under 134 today. His second round 66 included birdies on the seventh, ninth, 10th, 13th, 15th and 17th. He thus climbed one position from overnight tied third to tied second.

Jyoti Randhawa could not produce any fireworks in his second round as he shot an even par 72 to slip from overnight tied third to tied 19th. Randhawa's (68, 72) overall score stands at four under 140. Today, he made an eagle on the par five 10th, birdies on the third and ninth and bogeys on the 11th, 17th, sixth and seventh.

Another Indian in the fray Gaurav Ghei improved from overnight tied 63rd to tied 56th after firing a second consecutive 72. His total is even par 144.

Shiv Kapur is the only Indian who is currently below the projected cut of even par 144. Kapur had shot 74 in the first round and was not able to complete his second round today.

His second round score stood at one under after 16 holes.
