Nagoya(Japan), Apr 27 (PTI) Indian golfer Rahil Gangjee made the halfway cut at the Japan Golf Tour's Crowns Tournament in Nagoya despite a round of three-over 73 here today.

At two-over 142 for 36 holes, Gangjee is now T-57th and made the cut on the line.

Gangjee, who won the Panasonic Open Japan for his first win in 14 years on Asian Tour and first-ever win on Japan Tour, had three bogeys in first six holes and turned in four-over 39 that included a double on par-4 eighth.

On the back nine, he birdied 10th and 17th, but gave away another shot on 18th.

Japan's 25-year-old Shugo Imahira led a pair of Australians, Brendan Jones (66-67) and Anthony Quayle (65-68) and fellow Japanese Shota Aikyoshi (70-63) at the Nagoya Golf Club's Wago Course.

Imahira, who won his first Japan Tour event last year at Kansai Open, also recorded 11 other top tens in 2017 and is considered one of the most consistent young stars in Japan.

Jones won this event in 2011 and he has 14 Japan Golf Tour victories thus far
