Aditi, Tvesa share lead

Aditi Ashok and Tvesa Malik endured contrasting fortunes to share the lead after the opening round of the Usha-IGU Karnataka Ladies and Junior Girls Golf Championship here at Bangalore Golf Club on Wednesday.

Aditi, who hails from BGC, fought back after an error-prone opening nine while Tvesa stitched together a consistent round as the duo hit the front at one-over 71.

Talented Gurbani Singh was two shots off the pace while Astha Madan, Amandeep Drall, Vrishali Sinha, Riddhima Dilawari, Vidushi Sinha were bunched together at 74 in fourth place.
Despite knowing the course like the back of her hand, Aditi made a terrible start after going three-over in the front nine. She bogeyed the par-5 fifth before dropping back-to-back shots on the seventh and eighth holes. A gutsy performer with nerves of steel, Aditi hit back birdies on the 10th and 11th to reduce the deficit before parring the remaining holes to stay on course.
