Kapur tied 2nd after Rd1 of KLM Open

Delhi-pro Kapur opened with a birdie and picked up three more strokes before a bogey on the ninth had him three-under at the turn.

Kapur's back-nine was equally impressive as he pulled off birdies on the 12 and 17th and more then made up for a 16th-hole bogey by signing off his day with an eagle on the par-five 18th.

Among other Indians in fray, Jeev Milkha Singh was tied 53rd after returning a one-under 69 in the opening round. The Chandigarh-golfer stroked in four birdies against three bogeys in a roller-coaster round.

However, Jyoti Randhawa seemed in danger of missing the cut as he was tied 135th on the leader-board after carding a four-over 74 which comprised five bogeys and just one birdie.

At the top, Nicolas Colsaerts grabbed sole lead with an eight-under 62 in the opening round.
