Indian golfers once again failed to leave any mark and missed the cut at the Tenerife Open on Friday.
Shubhankar Sharma, who starts modestly with two-under, lost his momentum on day two and shot a disastrous 3-over in the second round that slipped him back into a tie for 116th place to miss the cut.
Other Indians on the field included Asian Tour winner SSP Chawrasia, 2019 Tour Champion winner Gaganjeet Bhullar and the talented Ajeetesh Sandhu.
The veteran SSP Chawrasia carded a decent 2-under 69 in the second round to gain a slight jump up at the leaderboard, but it wasn't enough to get him into the weekend competition.
Bhullar and Sandhu, on the other hand, struggled to make an impression once again and finished outside the Top-100 at the halfway stage to miss the second consecutive cut at the European Tour event.
Nicolai von Dellingshausen of Germany took a three-shot lead at the Tenerife Open after matching a career-best 62 through the second round on Friday.
Von Dellingshausen carded a 9-under round at the Golf Costa Adeje course on the Canary Islands. He made seven birdies to go with one bogey before eagling the par-5 18th hole by making a 20-foot putt from the fringe at the Costa Adeje, Tenerife, Spain.
Von Dellingshausen tied Thorbjorn Olesen's course record from the first round, but that mark was bettered only a day later by Scott Jamieson, who stormed into contention with a brilliant 10-under 61; with Olesen now five shots back after an inconsistent 69.
Scott Jamieson, who shot a course record 61, is four shots back, along with Scott Hend, Eduard Rousaud, and Kalle Samooja.Posted on: 2021 May 1 Sat
