Geneva, September 24
Tvesa Malik recovered from her first round card of 2-over 74 to shoot an even-par 72 and make the cut at the Lavaux Ladies Open here on Thursday.
Tvesa, who finished tied 10th at the Lacoste Open de France on the Ladies European Tour last week, was tied 38th after the first round and moved up to tied 31st at the end of 36 holes. The 54-hole event finishes on Friday.
Tvesa’s playing partner Pia Babnik, a hugely talented teen star, added 9-under 63 to her first round of 3-under 69 to get to 12-under and lead by five shots over overnight leader Agathe Sauzon (67-71) who is at 7-under 135.
Argentine amateur Magdalena Simmermacher (69-69) was third at 6-under.
Tvesa had a birdie on the 2nd and then suffered a setback with back-to-back bogeys on the 3rd and 4th. She reached even par with a birdie on the Par-5 5th. A bogey on the 10th and a birdie on the 12th with rest being pars ensured an even-par 72 for the Indian golfer.
In the first round, she had four birdies, four bogeys and a double bogey. PTI
