Park in touch at Johor Open

Australia&aposs Unho Park is just two shots from the Johor Open lead after the delayed second round was finally completed on Saturday. Park is in a tie for third with three others at eight under and just two strokes behind Daniel Chopra. Chopra posted a six-under 66 for a two-round total of 134 at the Asian Tour event, which was reduced to 54 holes at Horizon Hills due to persistent rainfall in Singapore. The Swede was closely followed by Thailand&aposs Chapchai Nirat, who moved to outright second place with a round of 66 to be at nine under overall. Park, American David Lipsky, Filipino Antonio Lascuna and India&aposs Shiv Chowrasia were a further shot behind in a tie for third. Lipsky, who fired a brilliant 63 to take the lead in the opening round, was left to rue a disappointing 73 second time around. Spaniard Sergio Garcia and Australian Scott Barr led a group of six players in equal seventh at seven under. Marcus Fraser was the next best Australian in a tie for 13th at six under, while countryman Rick Kulacz was a further shot off the pace in equal 18th. The tournament concludes with the third and now final round on Sunday.
