GURUGRAM: Rookie Nayanika Sanga scored a handsome 2-under 70 to take a one-shot lead over favorite Pranavi Urs and experienced Gaurika Bishnoi on stage 13 of the Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour tuesday.
Despite three mid-round bogeys, Nayanika, who was co-runner-up in Round 10 at Prestige Golfshire in Bengaluru, shot 70 which also had five birdies.
She started the day with a birdie, ended with a birdie and in between had more wins on the fourth 11th and 13th holes.
The Gurugram-based golfer, who has done well in recent WPGT starts, has also finished fourth, sixth and seventh in three other events apart from second place in Round 10.
Pranavi, who won five times in the first 12 innings, had a very consistent run, which started with a bogey. She recovered that on the fourth, then parried the rest until she reached 18, which she birdied again.
Gaurika had the most birdies (7) on the day, but she also gave up four bogeys and a double bogey on the Par-4 sixth hole.
With just three players carding under par, Shweta Mansingh finished fourth with 74, while Seher Atwal, Khushi Khanijau and Oviya Reddi had rounds of 3 of 75 each.
Rishika Muralidhar was the top amateur with 77 and tied for eighth alongside Sneha Singh.
Five players, including Neha Tripathi and Ridhima Dilawari, were tied for 10th with rounds of 78 apiece. The other three were Agrima Manral and amateurs Jasmine Shekar and Vidhatri Urs.
