Shiv Kapur 7th as five Indians make cut at Singapore Open

Phil Mickelson sent back by a double on par-5 seventh, rallied with a three-under 32 on back nine to squeeze inside the cut with rounds of 73 and 70.

Rory McIlroy battling a cold but accompanied by tennis superstar girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki, played 70-70 to be tied 26th.

Kapur, whose best here has been a fifth place in 2006 and eighth in 2007 said, "I'm happy to have finish it all in one go. It looked pretty dark when we were on the 16th and I thought it was going to be a touch and go."

"Well, it's nice and it looks like we will not be playing just three rounds. I got to shoot a really low one to have some kind of chances. It would be nice to finish at six or seven under so I can be a little closer to the leaders."

Lahiri played the last three holes of the second round in par and his only mishap in the round came in the form of a double bogey on the tenth, his starting hole on Friday.

"Yesterday (15 holes in second round) was a good day for me although I didn't start off very well (double bogey on 10th). I'm glad I played really well after that. I fought hard and made a few birdies. The weather's a bit irritating but you can¿t help it. You have to switch on and off a lot."

Chowrasia, whose best this year have been a tied 15th at BMW PGA and tied 11th at Scottish Open, completed his second round in 69.

"I had nine to play and I had two birdies, the second on the closing 18th, so that felt good."
