BA golfer Vikrant Chandra survived the cut at the Muriwai Open, in Auckland, New Zealand yesterday.

This is after Chandra turned on a better performance at the second round to post a score of two under par 70.

He recorded four birdies, 12 pars and two bogeys.

In the first round yesterday, Chandra scored one over par 73 with four birdies, ten pars, three bogeys and one double bogey.

At the halfway mark Chandra totalled one under par 143.
