Gursimar storms into sole lead

DH

Gursimar, who clinched her second pro title last week at the Prestige Golfshire, shot an even-par 72 to total 148 and take a slender one-shot lead at the KGA. Tanirika, who endured a roller coaster ride, carded 70 to lie second while another amateur Gurbani Singh scored 74 to lie third (150).

Overnight leader Neha Tripathi courted disaster, shooting an error-prone 79 to slip to 153.

Having found the conditions extremely challenging in the opening round, Gursimar chose to keep things tight at the testy KGA on Thursday. She parred the opening seven holes before dropping her first bogey on the eighth. She recovered with a birdie on the 10th but dropped shots on the 11th and 12th.

She, however, hit back again, sinking birdies on the 14th and 15th to present herself a fine chance of securing back-to-back titles.

Tanirika wavered from the brilliant to ordinary, tallying seven birdies but dropping five bogeys as well.

On the opening nine, she birdied four times and bogeyed twice. On the home bound journey, she birdied thrice and dropped shots an equal number of times.

Leading scores (after 36 holes, ‘A’ denotes amateur): 148: Gursimar Badwal (76, 72); 149: Tanirika Singh (A, 79, 70); 150: Gurbani Singh (A, 76, 74); 152: Pranavi Urs (A, 77, 75).
