BA golfer Vikrant Chandra missed the cut at the New Zealand Open Championship yesterday.

Chandra was part of the group that teed off early in the morning with temperatures dropping as low as 10 degrees.

Playing at the Millbrook Golf Club in Queenstown, Chandra scored five over par 77 in the second round.

He recorded two birdies, 10 pars, five bogies and one double bogey.

Chandra also scored 77 in the first round on Thursday.

His total was ten over par 154 and finished at the bottom of the leader board.

Chandra, who turned professional in 2012, earned a card on the New Zealand PGA Tour last month.

He has since played in five tournaments winning prizemoney in all events.

Richard Lee and Adam Blyth lead the NZ Open with nine under par 135. Fiji Open defending champion Ryan is in the top ten after posting five under par 139.
