Lahiri, Shubhankar make cut at Fort Worth Invitational
Fort Worth (US): Anirban Lahiri had an off day while Shubhankar Sharma turned in a much-improved show, as both the Indian golfers made the cut at the Fort Worth Invitational at the Colonial here.
Shubhankar, needing a low second round after his 73 on the first day, had a better day on the greens as he shot 68, while Lahiri failed to build on his first day's 67 and shot 74. Both Indians totalled 1-over 141 and made the weekend in tied 60th place as the cut fell on 2-over after winds picked up in the afternoon.
Justin Rose fought hard over the last three holes, which were scrappy, as he added a 6-under 64 to his first round 66 and at 10-under 130, he was one shot in lead over Argentina's Emiliano Grillo (67). Brooks Koepka (63) and Satoshi Kodaira (67) were tied third at 70-under.
Shubhankar, playing earlier in the day, had an eventful front nine as he had three birdies, one par and two bogeys in a six-hole stretch from second to seventh.
