Panchkula, November 4

Chandigarh’s Akshay Sharma shot a bogey-free 8-under 64 in Round 1 to take the lead in the PGTI Players Championship.

S Chikkarangappa was second after a 6-under. While the two leading scores came at the Panchkula Golf Club, Sunit Chowrasia recorded the day’s best score at the Chandigarh Golf Club, a 5-under-67, to be in third place.
