Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], July 5 (ANI): Khushi Khanijau’s birdie on the 18th while playing alongside the talented amateur Keerthana Rajeev Nair, ensured both had a share of the lead at 1-under 71 in the 10th leg of the Women’s Pro Golf Tour at Prestige Golfshire.
The duo was later joined by another amateur, Vidhatri Urs, who won the ninth leg by a massive 13 shots.
Three others led by the experienced Tvesa Malik alongside yet another amateur, Mannat Brar, who leads the Order of Merit on the IGU circuit, and rookie pro, Kriti Chowhan shot even par 72 each.
Four players, including two more amateurs, Saanvi Somu, who was second behind Vidhatri in the ninth leg, and Prakruthi Sastry, were tied for seventh place alongside Ananya Datar and Neha Tripathi. They all carded 1 over 73 each.
With five players in the Top-10, the amateurs were once in the spotlight as they have been in recent Hero WPGT events.
Amateur Keerthana, who was the runner-up in the eighth leg, had an action-packed round with six birdies, three on either side of the golf course. But she also had two bogeys and a double on the ninth on the front nine, but she was bogey-free for the second stretch over which she birdied three times, on the 14th, 16th, and 18th holes.
Vidhatri had three birdies against one bogey on the front nine and just one bogey on the back nine.
Khushi, the best pro on the day, had two birdies on the front nine and two bogeys on 10th and 12th, but ensured a under par card and a share of the lead with a fine birdie on 18th.
