Rotary men's championship from today

The Eagleton Golf Resort will witness four days of hectic activity starting Tuesday as the country's amateur golfers battle for supremacy in the Rotary Club of Bangalore Karnataka Men's Golf Championship and the RCB South India Ladies Golf Championship.

While the men's event will kick-off on Tuesday at the par-72 course, the women's competition, which will be played over 54 holes, will start a day later.

West Bengal's Kartik Sharma, Karnataka's Yashas Chandra and Uttar Pradesh's Harimohan Singh are the ones to watch out for in the men's competition which has attracted around 68 participants. Yashas looked very much in the hunt in the Southern India Amateur Championship at the Prestige Golfshire last week when he shot two straight four-under 68 to stay one shot behind leader Varun Parikh at the halfway stage. Yashas, however, faltered over the next two rounds while Varun remained steady to seal victory.

Kartik had a disappointing outing last week and he'll be looking to make amends at a course that's ideal for shot-making with its wide and not so treacherous fairways.

The ladies' event, which kick-starts their season, promises a keen battle with the top five from previous year's Order of Merit teeing off. Diksha Dagar, Sifat Sagoo, Mysuru's Pranavi Urs, Sifat Alag and Nayanika Sanga will be gunning for a perfect start and some momentum ahead of the Asian Games trials at the end of this month.

While the men will take a short break before flying to New Delhi for the Asian Games trials, the women will travel to Clover Greens (April 16-19) for the Southern India Ladies and Junior Championship and then proceed to the capital.
