Milan (Italy), May 10 (IANS) A sensational back nine with five birdies over seven holes saw Shiv Kapur card a seven-under 65 and jump up the leaderboard to tied 13th, a leap of 40 places, at the midway stage of Italian Open golf on the European Tour here. Meanwhile, Sweden’s Robert Karlsson blazed the course with a 11-under 61 to take the second round lead with a total of 15-under 129 at Castello di Tolcinasco Golf and Country Club.

Kapur (70, 65) trails Karlsson by six strokes at nine-under 135 in a low-scoring event.

Delhi-born Kapur opened with birdies on the first and fifth and turned in two-under before going on a birdie-spree. He sank a hat-trick of birdies on the 10th, 11th and 12th and then added back-to-back birdies on the 15th and 16th.

Karlsson, the towering Swede was also in great touch and landed two eagle threes in his effort to post a 15 under par total of 129, just one shot outside Ian Poulter’s record 36 hole total for the tournament in 2002.
