Khalin in tied 36th place

Antalya (Turkey), Oct 5, 2012, PTI: 21:22 IST
Khalin Joshi was the top Indian golfer after the first round of the 2012 World Amateur Team Championship as he shot a one-under 71 at the Cornelia Golf Club here.

Joshi was individually lying tied 36th, but the Indian team — other two members being S Chikkrangappa (74) and Angad Cheema (77) — was placed tied 22nd at 145 with Joshi and Chikka’s scores counting for the day. Meanwhile, the USA broke the all-time record for lowest 18-hole team score with a 13-under 131 to take a four-stroke lead over Mexico.

Jeev in sixth

Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh stayed in contention for the title after carding a bogey-free two-under 70 in the second round to lie tied sixth at the Canon Open 2012 on the Japan Tour in Yokohama. Jeev is four shots behind leader Yuta Ikeda (68) at 10-under 134.

Kapur, Rai struggle

Shiv Kapur (71) and Himmat Rai (74) made less-than-impressive starts on the opening day of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship being played over three courses at St Andrews (UK). Kapur played with former Dutch footballer Ruud Gullit and shot a one-under 71.

He was lying 76th, but fellow Indian Himmat Rai, making his maiden appearance at this event, carded a 74 which comprised a birdie and three bogeys. Rai was lying 140th.

Sharmila disappoints

Indian Sharmila Nicollet struggled to a disastrous 10-over 80 in the opening round to virtually put herself out of the running for a place in the last two rounds of the Lacoste Ladies Open de France in Saint-Jean-de-Luz. She was lying bottom of the heap at tied 77th.

Vani triumphs

Vani Kapoor kept her calm to win her second title of the season on the Hero-WGAI Women’s Pro Tour in New Delhi. Vani, 18, won the third leg in Golfshire Prestige and added the second title out of seven at the Delhi Golf Club (DGC).

She carded a one-over 73 to finish the week at seven-over 223, four shots clear of Nalini Singh Siwach (79). Smriti Mehra, who led Nalini by two shots overnight, and Vani by four, simply blew her round with a card of 11-over 83 and dropped to third at 229 where she tied with Saaniya Sharma (73).
