Hyderabad (PTI): Talented teenaged amateur Sneha Singh made good use of her local knowledge of the Hyderabad Golf Club layout by carding two-over 73 to take the first round lead on Wednesday.
Sneha, who just turned 15 in June, had three birdies, one bogey and two double bogeys on the challenging but exciting course of the Hyderabad Golf Association. Sneha was followed by the experienced Vani Kapoor who, playing her first event in two months, shot three-over 74 despite starting the day with three bogeys in a row. Vani had two birdies, both on Par-3s, the 11th and 16th, while she dropped five bogeys. Neha Tripathi and Gurjot Badwal shot 75 each, while Ridhima Dilawari, the only three-time winner this season, shot 76 as did Ananya Datar to be Tied-fifth.
Gursimar Badwal, elder sister of Gurjot, and Amandeep Drall were Tied-seventh with 77 each while amateur Shreya Pal and Gaurika Bishnoi carded 78 each to complete the Top-10. Sneha, an 11th standard student in a Hyderabad school, has been doing well in age-group competitions and finished in the Top-3 in the Hyderabad leg of the US Kids Golf Championships. Her father Sanjay Kumar, also a golfer, is her coach and she is a regular at the course.
