Pinehurst, USA: Not even a crippling triple bogey on the stretch back home could stop Indian golfer Shiv Kapur from making the midway cut at the US Open.

Kapur, who was three-under for the day through 15 holes, made a triple on the par-4 16th, but kept control of his nerves to finish with pars and a card of even par 70 after a first round 73.

At three-over 143, Kapur was tied 33rd to become only the second Indian, after Jeev Milkha Singh to make the cut in a US Open.
