Jahanvi Bakshi grabs second-round lead in 5th leg of WPGT

The sensational young golfer Jahanvi Bakshi smashed a solid 3-under par in the second round to grab the lead after day two of the fifth leg of the Women's Professional Golf Tour.

Jahanvi, who is still searching for her maiden win on the Tour, was the only player to shot an under-par on the second day that takes her two rounds total at 4-under 140.

Hitaashee, the younger sister of Jahanvi, shot a to claim the second spot after the end of day 2.

The veteran Vani Kapoor carded a 73 to lie at third, while Tvesa Malik, who began well with 71 on the first day, shot a disastrous 77 to lies tied-4th with amateur Avani Prashanth (72-76).

Jahanvi has played some great golf in the second round; and smashed birdies on fourth, fifth, and ninth to turn in 3-under.

"The last time I played here in the 8th leg, I shot 3-under 69, so I knew it was possible. I tried to stay clear of the errors of yesterday. Last year was a rookie season for both of us, and Hitaashee won leg nine, so she inspired me. She is the youngest, so if she could I knew I could also win," Jahanvi said.

Overnight leader Saaniya Sharma, who had posted 70 on day one, lost momentum and shot a disastrous 89 on the second day to find the T-16 position.
