Glenview, Illinois, May 31 (UNI) Ace Indian pro Arjun Atwal staged a late comeback with a birdie after he slipped early in the round with back-to-back bogeys as he carded an even par 72 in wet and tough conditions on the second day of the Nationwide Tour's 750,000 dollars Bank of America Open here.

Atwal cut down on risks on the back nine and concentrated on keeping steady on a day when strong winds tested all the golfers.

He had birdies on fifth and 17th and bogeys on sixth and seventh to be placed 18th after two rounds.

Currently 13th on the Nationwide Money List, Atwal, is looking for another good finish to come back to the PGA Tour after a gap of two years.

Skip Kendall had a bogey-free round and surged into the lead with a brilliant 7-under 65. Kendall took his total score to 11-under 133 and a two-stroke cushion over Kris Banks (70).

Earlier, thunderstorms hung over The Glen Club early in the day and forced a 90-minute delay to the beginning of play.

First-round leader Kyle Reifers, who began late in the evening, was at 9 under through four holes when play was finally called for the day. Matt Weibring (through 11 holes) is three shots back at 8 under.
