MANILA, Philippines - Angelo Que wavered coming home and limped with a three-over 75 and dropped out of the lead in the second round of the storm-delayed Yeangder Tournament Players Championship (TPC) Linkou International Golf and Country Club in Taipei yesterday.

Que, who fired a flawless 65 to the lead in the first round of the $500,000 event, bogeyed two of the three holes for that 75 and slipped to joint seventh with Gavin Flint of Australia, who made a second 70, and local bet Yeh Wei-tze, who matched par 72, at 140.

The Filipino shotmaker fell by five shots behind Indian Gaganjeet Bhullar, who surged ahead at 135 after a 69 for a one-stroke lead over Thai Thaworn Wiratchant, who had a 136 after a 66.

Barry Henson, the former Philippine Open winner, moved up to joint third with American Jason Knutzon, who shot a 71, at 137 after a 68.

Mars Pucay shot a 69 and improved to joint ninth at 141 while Miguel Tabuena and Tony Lascuña were tied at 142.
