Centurion: Gaganjeet Bhullar put himself in a fine position for a top-10 finish as he carded a seven-under 65 to move to tied ninth place at the halfway stage of the Tshwane Open here. Bhullar, who shot 70 in the first round, was nine-under for two rounds and four behind leader Ross Fisher (66-65). Other Indian golfer in the field, Shiv Kapur (67-74), who slipped in the second round, was tied 51st but made the cut.

Fisher's seven under par round of 65 moved the Englishman to 13 under par, one stroke clear of Denmark's Morten Orum Madsen, who continued his impressive run. Bhullar, playing in his rookie year on the European Tour, was in excellent form as he birdied three in a row from second to fourth and added a fourth birdie on sixth.

A dropped shot on seventh and then two pars saw him turn in three-under. On the back nine he birdied 10th, 12th, 14th and 16th and had no bogeys for a day's work of 65, which was the day's best score and achieved by six others.
