Neha shares lead with Seher after first round in 10th leg of Hero WPGT

Bengaluru, Jul 20 (Golf News) Neha Tripathi carded a two-under 70 in the opening round to enjoy a share of the lead in the 10th leg of the Hero Women's Pro Golf Tour here on Wednesday.

Neha, who has not won on the Hero Women's Pro Golf Tour since the first leg of the 2019 season, shared the lead with Seher Atwal at the Prestige Golfshire.

Three players, amateur Vidhatri Urs, Sneha Singh and Ishvari Prasanna carded one-under 71 each, while two other players, Nayanika Sanga and Shweta Mansingh scored even par 72 each to be tied sixth.

Gaurika Bishnoi, who had a triple bogey eighth on the Par-5 third and Ananya Datar, were Tied-eighth with 73 each, while Saaniya Sharma and Gauri Karhade shot two-over 74 each to be Tied-10th.

Neha, who has been playing on-and-off on the Ladies European Tour, had five birdies on first, sixth, ninth, 11th and 16th and dropped shots on eighth, 13th and 15th.

Seher, who won last year in Pune and was runner-up in her last two starts, also shot 70 despite suffering a double bogey on the Par-5 16th, which was her only blemish on the day.

She had four birdies on first, sixth, 10th and 14th, at which point she was four-under before the double bogey saw her drop.

Four-time winner this season, Pranavi Urs had a rough day as she had three double bogeys and a bogey against three birdies in a card of four-over 76 that placed her T-13.

However, Pranavi has shown an ability to fight back over the last two days and this may well be yet another occasion.
