Randhawa fires 73 for tied 34th place


Randhawa was understandably cautious after missing quite a few cuts in recent past and the lanky Indian mixed two bogeys and as many birdies to settle for an even-par card.
In contrast, Chowrasia had a nightmare in store for him. Apart from the 12th hole birdie, the diminutive Kolkata pro had nothing to show.

Lee Slattery blasted six-under 67 to take the opening round lead with the long-hitting Ricardo Gonzalez breathing down his neck one shot behind.

Arjun Atwal was reeling at three-over after four holes when darkness dropped curtains on the opening round of Canadian Open, leaving the Indian stranded with 14 holes to go in the $5 million PGA Tour event golf tournament at Oakville, Canada.

American Kevin Na blasted a nine-under 63 for a two-shot lead over Scott Verplank, Retief Goosen and Joe Durant.

Gaganjeet Bhullar carded a stellar four-under 68 to rise to tied 11th in the Indonesia President Invitational golf tournament in Jakarta.

Seasoned campaigner Gaurav Ghei (146), Manav Jaini (146), Digvijay Singh (150) and C Muniyappa (145) failed to make the cut in the Asian Tour event.
