June 16: India’s Shiv Kapur enjoyed a solid finish at the U.S. Open when he closed with a two-over-par 72 for a share of 23rd place on Sunday.
The 32-year-old Indian, who is an Asian Tour winner, mixed his card with two birdies against four bogeys for a six-over-par 286 total in the year's second Major held at Pinehurst No. 2.
Kapur finished 15 shots from the winner, Martin Kaymer of Germany, who completed a wire-to-wire victory to claim his second major championship title.
Playing in his third major, Kapur was the second Indian, after Jeev Milkha Singh to make the halfway cut at the U.S. Open.
Asian Tour honorary member Ernie Els of South Africa signed for a 72 for tied 35th place while Noh, the youngest Asian Tour Order of Merit champion in 2010, carded a disappointing 74 to slip to a share of 52nd place.
Korean American Kevin Na, a former Asian Tour winner, posted a 73 to take a share of 12th place.
Ends.
