Jan 08, 2020: Amateur Pranavi Urs and last year’s most successful player Ridhima Dilawari shared the lead at the end of the first round of the first Leg of the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour 2020. They shot one-under 70 each on the Par-71 Poona Golf Club course.

Urs and Dilawari were the only ones to shoot sub-par scores at the Par-72 Poona Golf Club course. They led by two shots over the fancied Diksha Dagar (72), who finished bogey-bogey after being two-under through 16 holes.

Urs, who has a win on the pro tour while still being an amateur in 2018, played steady after starting with a bogey. She birdied third, eighth and 18th and in between dropped a shot on 17th.

Dilawari hit by bogeys on seventh and ninth turned in two over but birdies on 12th, 15th and 18th ensured a 70.

Dagar was one-under after 16 with two birdies against bogey when she came to the 17th tee, but she dropped a shot on both the closing holes for a 72.

Three players, Saaniya Sharma, Afshan Fatima and Amandeep Drall carded 73 each and were Tied-fourth. Drall’s card was spoilt by a late double bogey on Par-4 16th.

Neha Tripathi (74) was seventh, while Khushi Khanijau, Vani Kapoor and Ananya Datar were Tied-eighth with rounds of 75 each.

The Hero Order of Merit winner for 2019, Gaurika Bishnoi, was lying Tied-11th with a round of five-over 76 with four bogeys, a double bogey and just one birdie.
