The young and talented Seher Atwal showed some great game on the first day of the 15th leg of Hero WPGT to grab a one-stroke lead over veteran golfer Neha Tripathi.
The Delhi-based golfer had two birdies against two bogeys and a double-bogey in her opening round at the historic Royal Calcutta Golf Club, Kolkata.
Neha, who has not won since the 1st leg in 2019, played a steady first round as she displayed some positive signs of eager to win attitude and grabbed solo second position at the Rs. 7 Lakh prize money event.
16-time WPGT champion Neha Tripathi started her campaign with two birdies and three bogeys on the front-nine, followed by three more bogeys on the back-nine going into the second round.
Last week’s winner Ridhima Dilawari took the third spot after shooting 5-over 77 in the first round of the season-ending event.
Amateur Smriti Bhargav maintained her steady play once again and was the leading amateur after a round of six-over 78 to be placed tied-4th alongside seasoned Lakhmehar Padresi and two others.
Jyotsana Singh and Rhea Purvi S were further shot back at the tied-8th position.
While a pack of five golfers, including runner-up of the last week's event Saaniya Sharma, were at tied-10th spot.Posted on: 2021 Dec 16 Thu
