India’s International star Tvesa Malik carded a flawless 4-under 66 which carried her to the top of the leaderboard at the end of the second round of the sixth leg of the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour at the Rambagh Golf Club.

The tough contender Tvesa looked solid since the first round, where she produced 1-under, followed by a splendid 6-under 66 on day two to hold a 3-shot lead heading into the final round in the sixth leg of WPGT 2021.

The overnight leader Jahanvi Bakshi (71), whose round was a mixed bag of three bogeys and two birdies while playing with Tvesa, slipped to the second spot in the Rs. 10,00,000 event.

Tvesa, who has not won since the 13th leg in 2019, a season in which she won three times, was happy as her game bounced back. “I felt confident with my putting after quite a while, and I made the putts I needed. I also hit well, and the most satisfying thing was I kept bogeys off the card. Let’s see how things shape up in the final round,” said Tvesa.

2021 first event winner Ridhima Dilawari (71) finds the third spot after shooting two birdies and three bogeys in the second round of this event.

Amateur Avani Prashanth maintained her steady play once again and was the leading amateur after a round of even-par 70 that had two birdies and two bogeys. She was sole fourth.

WPGT Order of Merit leader Amandeep Drall was even par after the first nine, but then gave away four bogeys and a double bogey in an eight-hole stretch before ending the day with a consolation birdie. Her round of 75 saw her slip to Tied-fifth alongside Hitaashee Bakshi.
