New Delhi: At the centre of a storm within the Collegium which has been in a standoff with the government over the appointment of judges, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra on Friday said "the Supreme Court is one" and there is need for cordial relations between the Bar and the Bench. "As has been told, the Supreme Court is one. The Bar fosters us, nurtures us and, on every occasion, I have told the young members of the Bar, be the guiding angels. It's not the age, but the entry into the Bar that makes you
Seongnam (Korea): India's Ajeetesh Sandhu slipped into tied-second spot despite dropping three shots in the second round of the 37th GS Caltex Maekyung Open Golf Championship here on Friday.
Sandhu, who carded four-under 67 on the opening day, shot an even par 71 on the second to be three-under for 36 holes.
Sandhu trailed Korean Dongha Lee (68), while Heungchul Joo (70) joined Sandhu in tied-second place.
It was a good day for the Indians as Shiv Kapur, despite carding one-over 72, moved up from tied 7th to tied 5th, while Gaganjeet Bhullar (72-70) and S Chikkarangappa (72-70) were tied 9th as four Indians figured in top-10.
Arjun Atwal (75-73) just about squeezed inside the cut line with a birdie on his closing hole, the ninth, after a roller-coaster ride.
Atwal had four birdies against a double in first six holes starting from 10th. But three of bogeys from 16 to 18 meant he turned in one-over. Then three bogeys against just one birdie meant he was seven-over with one hole to play and he birdied that to make the cut on the line.
Jeev Milkha Singh (74-75), Jyoti Randhawa (75-76) and Khalin Joshi (76-76) missed the cut.
It was a lot tougher on Friday with the swirling winds and I felt it was really difficult out there. At least the winds died down after the thunderstorms on Thursday. But today (Friday), they were everywhere which made it tough to hit a shot," Sandhu said.
"But the good thing is I'm playing well and anytime you're close to the lead, you know you have a chance of doing well. I'm happy with where I'm now.
Sandhu, winner in Taiwan last year a week before he won a Japan Challenge Tour event, seemed set to take at least a share of the lead with three holes to go. The Indian was three-under with three holes in the second round and his total was seven-under.
