Cheonan, Korea, June 24: None of the four Indians in the field this week at Asian Tour’s Kolon Korea Open at Woo Jeong Hills Country Club made the cut and exited early.

Rahil Gangjee came the closest and missed out by one shot after rounds of 72 and 75. Adding to the disappointment was that the three others in the field also failed to progress beyond the second round. Gaganjeet Bhullar (73-75) and Veer Ahlawat (78-76) were further behind while Honey Baisoya withdrew after the first round 80.

Korea’s Sanghee Lee added a second-round three-under-par 68 to his opening 69 to take the halfway lead. The Korean is 5-under for the prestigious event, one ahead of his countrymen Taehee Lee (66) and Taehoon Ok (69) and American Jarin Todd (69).

Sanghee Lee has won four times in Korea but admitted that his national Open is the one that he really wants to win the most.

Koreans Junghwan Lee (71), Kyongjun Moon (70), Doyeon Hwang (68), and Hyungjoon Lee (68) are three under in a tie for fifth.

Korean Bio Kim, lying second in the Order of Merit, was able to improve on his opening 72 with a 69. He is one under for the tournament and in contention despite an unfortunate bogey on his last hole.
