Scotland's Richie Ramsay birdied four of his closing five holes as he raced into a three-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Indian Open yesterday.

Ramsay, who had shared the overnight lead after the opening round, fired a second successive five-under-par 66 for 10-under-par 132 at the $1.25 million Asian Tour event in southwest India.

Indian star Gaganjeet Bhullar led the local charge with a round of 69 for tied sixth position and is five shots off the pace at the Karnataka Golf Association course.
