S.S.P. Chawrasia takes 1-shot lead at Indian Open

NEW DELHI (AP) " Defending champion S.S.P. Chawrasia shot a 5-under 67 Friday in the second round of the Indian Open to take a one-stroke lead at the rain-affected event.

Chawrasia, a five-time Asian Tour winner, is at 5-under 139 total, one shot ahead of David Horsey (74).

"First day I was level par as I was a little bit scared at this new tricky course," Chawrasia said. "I won't change anything. I'll keep the same strategy. Hit it straight and putt well."

Play was stopped for the second straight day because of the threat of lightning.
