Pranavi Urs grabbed the second-round lead in the fourth leg of Hero WPGT even after carding an even-par 72 thanks to her first-round 68.
Pranavi, who won the first leg of the 2022 Hero WPGT, started the day with a birdie and had a wonderful front nine-game as she made two birdies without any errors. She then lost the momentum on the back-nine and witnessed a rollercoaster in the form of three bogeys against a single birdie but somehow managed to grab a one-shot lead.
The overnight leader Hitaashee Bakshi, who played a solid game of golf on Wednesday, had a not so pleasant round to slip down from top to the second position with 18 holes game to go.
Ridhima Dilawari and Vani Kapoor were the only two golfers in the field of 33 players to hit under-par scores.
Ridhima added 2-under 70 to her first-round 73 to be placed solo third, while Vani, who shot 74 in the opening round, carded a steady 1-under 71 in round two to be at solo fourth.
India’s International stars Amandeep Drall and Gaurika Bishnoi both were at tied-5th after 36-hole matching scores of 4-over 148.
Among the 33 golfers in the field, the amateur Jasmine Shekhar took the honours of smashing an eagle.
The young Jasmine did it on the 347 yards par-4 11th and was lying eight with two days total of 7-over 151.
12 golfers, including LET regular Astha Madan, failed to make the cut.
