Gaurika Bishnoi shoots sublime 66 to take first-round lead at Boulder Hills

Gaurika Bishnoi started her 2022 journey with a sublime 66 to take a 5-shot lead at the first leg of Hero WPGT on Wednesday.

The 2-time Hero WPGT Order of Merit champion Bishnoi, who is a strong contender on the course, once again proved her mettle at the challenging Boulder Hills Golf & Country Club by letting all her competitors’ 5-shot behind going into the second round.

Bishnoi began her campaign alongside Hitaashee Bakshi from the first tee and had a solid first nine-hole game, making three birdies without making any mistakes.

Three golfers, including two amateurs, Sneha Singh and Jasmine Shekhar, alongside professional Jyotsana Singh were at tied-2nd spot with 1-under 71.

The star attraction Ridhima Dilawari had a recent start to her 2022 campaign as she managed to card an even-par 72 on the first day of the opening event of Hero WPGT 2022 season.

4-time WPGT champion Jahanvi Bakshi was a further shot back at tied-6th alongside Anisha Aggarwal.
