Atwal, Chopra miss the cut at Canadian Open

Written by: Staff

Ancaster, Ontario, Sep 9 (UNI) Arjun Atwal and Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra continued their miserable run and missed a second successive cut as they dropped out of contention after the second round of the 6250000 dollar Canadian Open here.

Atwal carded an improved level-par 70 but that hardly helped his cause after a first-round 72 and the Orlando-based Indian fell by the wayside with a two-day total of two-over 142.

Chopra, however, put up a below par show and carded a two-over 72 to miss the cut by a single shot. The Swede had carded a decent 69 in the first round but failed to replicate the performance in the second and went out with a total of 141.

Atwal fired in four birdies and an equal number of bogeys, while Chopra dropped three shots against a solitary birdie at the scenic Hamilton Golf and Country Club.

The former Asian tour number one made a fine start and hit a birdie on the second but bogeys on the fourth and sixth undid the good work. He regained his touch and gained a shot on the ninth to make the turn even-par.

His backward journey, however, did not start as well and he dropped a bogey on the 10th. The Indian sank in birdies on the 14th and 17th but a bogey in between meant that Atwal missed his second consecutive cut.

Meanwhile, Chopra never looked in good touch and dropped a shot on the first to make a disappointing start. He stumbled to two bogeys on the eighth and 12th before finally firing in a birdie on the 15th. The Swede needed a birdie in his last three holes to make it to the next round but he only managed level-par shots to drop out of contention from the event.

At the top, Sweden's Jesper Parnevik (68), with a two-round total of seven-under 133, was tied for the top spot with Columbian Camilo Villegas and Americans Arron Oberholser and Jonathan Byrd.
