Jeev makes cut, tied 46th after round two in PGA Championship
Gifu, Japan, May 12 (UNI) Winner of last month's Volvo China Open, Jeev Milkha Singh stumbled with back-to-back bogeys in his first two holes but recovered for an even-par show to make the cut in the 110 million yen PGA Championship here today.
After rounds of 71 and 72, Jeev is placed tied 46th at one-under 143 at the Tanigumi Country Club.
A 10th tee starter, the Asian Tour UBS Order of Merit leader had a horrible start, dropping a shot in each of the first two holes but he overcame with birdies on the 13th and 17th to complete his halfway journey.
On his way back, Jeev fired a bogey on the fourth -- his 13th -- but another bogey on the ninth undid the good work as he completed an average outing .
Meanwhile, Toru Taniguchi carded his second successive round of 68 to join Norihiko Nakata, who returned 70, at the top of the table at eight-under 136.
