Indian golfer Shubhankar Sharma endured a tense stretch of eight holes with four bogeys in the second round before making the cut at the Cazoo Classic here.

The 25-year-old Sharma is Tied-34th at the halfway stage.

Sharma, starting from 10th, birdied 11th and 12th but then bogeyed 13th, 14th and 17th. At that stage, he was 1-under and yet another bogey on the second made it even par.

However, he finished strongly with three birdies between fourth and seventh to safely move ahead. This has often been Sharma's feature these last few weeks as he has mixed solid golf with dropped shots that have affected his final positions.

Meanwhile, Gaganjeet Bhullar (73-72), SSP Chawrasia (75-71), Shiv Kapur (76-70) and Ajeetesh Sandhu (76-76) missed the cut.
