Gurugram, March 10
Saaniya Sharma carded five birdies against three bogeys for the day’s best card of a 2-under 70 on the first day of the fifth leg of the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour here today.
Saaniya’s best finish this season has been T-12 but in the first round here today, she shot her best round of the year. It gave her a one-shot lead over the trio of experienced Tvesa Malik and the Bakshi sisters, Hitaashee and Jahanvi.
Saaniya, a qualified referee and a coach, has been playing patchy golf this season and was happy to get a card under par. “I have worked hard last few weeks, so it is good to see the scores coming in,” she said. — PTI
