Overnight joint leader Smriti settles for second spot

Vani Kapoor produced a dramatic birdie-finish to win her second straight title in as many weeks at the Hero-WGAI Women’s Pro Tour, the eighth leg of the Indian women’s domestic tour here on Friday.

This was the 18-year-old rookie, Vani’s third title of the season and she has now emerged as a strong contender for the Order of Merit title on the Hero-WGAI Tour.

Vani carded the only under-par round of the day at 70 to total 219, while Smriti Mehra (73), the overnight joint leader with Nalini Singh Siwach, finished second at 220.

Bhullar holds lead

After a blistering 63 in the opening round, Gaganjeet Bhullar added a more modest three-under 68 to move to 11-under 131 after the second round of the Venetian Macau Open. He held a three-shot lead over Thai newcomer Thitiphun Chuayprakong.

Gurbani triumphs

Defending champion Gurbani Singh shot two closing bogeys but still won the title comfortably on the final day of the Usha West Bengal Ladies Open Amateur golf championship in Kolkata.

Gurbani, who shot a stunning six-under 64 on the first day, carded 75 and won the tournament by six shots at the Tollygunge Golf Club. She finished way ahead of Aditi Ashok (75), who settled for the second place.

Sluggish Atwal

Arjun Atwal was off to a sluggish start of two-over 73 that placed him tied 92nd at the end of the first round at the Frys.com Open on the PGA Tour in San Martin.

Atwal, the first Indian to win on the PGA Tour, had four bogeys in his first 11 holes, before two birdies on 15th and 16th saved him from total disaster.

Gangjee disappoints

Rahil Gangjee had to wait till the very last hole to make his only birdie of the day as he opened with a poor three-over 74 that saw him placed at tied 98 at the end of the first round of the Miccosukee Championships on the Web.com Tour in Miami.
