Avondale, April 30:

India’s Arjun Atwal is trying to keep a low profile in the Zurich Classic. It won’t be easy if he keeps playing this well. The 32-year-old Atwal, a two-time winner on the PGA European Tour, shot a 4-under 69 in windy conditions to finish the second round at 11-under 133. He had six birdies and two bogeys. JJ Henry (67) was a stroke back at 10 under. Atwal lost a playoff early this month in the BellSouth Classic for his best finish of the year. Last season, he made only 12 cuts in 30 events and finished 146th on the money list with $486,052. Chris DiMarco had a 71 to join Tim Clark (69) at 8 under. Lucas Glover (68) was 7 under, and defending champion Vijay Singh followed his opening 67 with a 71 for 6 under.
