Mehar Atwal and Kiran Matharu returned scores of three-over 75 each to share the lead after the opening round of the Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour first leg at the Kensville Golf & Country Club in Ahmedabad on Tuesday.

Trailing them by a stroke was Vani Kapoor in the Rs 7 lakh three-day event.Delhi’s Mehar had an indifferent start, dropping consecutive shots on the first and second holes. Thereafter, she seemed to settle down but a double bogey on the seventh added to her woes.

She played with much more control in the latter half, carding birdies on the 12th and 16th holes with a lone bogey on the 13th.

Overseas player Kiran began poorly dropping shots on the 2nd and 7th holes, with a lone birdie on the 6th. She added another birdie on the 13th hole and looked set to grab the sole lead, but three consecutive bogies from the 16th hole meant she had to share the lead with Mehar.

Another Delhi golfer Vani carded a four-over 76, that consisted birdies on the 8th and 14th holes along with bogies on the 2nd, 6th, 10th, 11th, 16th and 17th holes.

Kapurthala’s Gursimar Badwal and Shweta Galande of Pune carded scores of seven-over 79 to be tied fourth after 18 holes.

Gursimar played a birdieless round with bogies on the 1st, 3rd, 7th, 10th and 14th holes and a double on the 16th. Shweta too struggled with the conditions and dropped shots on the 3rd, 8th, 14th, 15th and 17th holes, with a double on the 13th.

Chandigarh’s Saaniya Sharma and Ankita Tiwana of Delhi were tied sixth both returning eight-over 80.

Following them in the tied eighth place were Jaipur’s Afshan Fatima and Kolkata pro Neha Tripathi. The only highlight of the day was the first eagle of the season by Smriti Mehra on the 14th hole.
