Arjun, Himmat able to make cut in Manila

Arjun Singh (72, 74) still remained the best-placed Indian at the event eventhough he went down three places further after the end of second round. Arjun totalled two over 146 and was the highest placed Indian to be at tied 22nd at the halfway mark.
Arjun’s second round saw him sink birdies on the sixth and 14th and drop bogeys on the seventh, eighth, 10th and 13th. The other best-placed Indian Himmat Singh Rai (73, 76) was tied 52nd at five over 149.
Himmat’s second round was highlighted by birdies on the third and fifth, bogeys on the 17th, second, seventh and eighth and a double bogey on the par four 13th.
The cut was declared at six over 150 on a relatively high scoring day. Japan’s Kodai Ichihara (66, 70) continued his good run as he sustained his first round lead with a total of eight under 136 for the first two days.
