13 June 2019: Millie Saroha and Tvesa Malik swapped spots at the top of the leaderboard after an engaging second round at the Prestige Golfshire in Bengaluru. The eighth leg is poised on the edge with the two women separated by a single stroke. Saroha shot a brilliant 69 to edge past the overnight leader, who made 71 on Thursday to reach the final round at 1-under 143. Ridhima Dilawari remained in third place after adding a 75 to her first round 74, six shots adrift from Malik.
Astha Madan leapfrogged Gaurika Bishnoi and Khushi Khanijau to move into fourth with a fine 72 in the second round. Last week’s winner at Clover Greens, Bishnoi had to stay content with a 74, the same score as amateur Sneha Sharan and Neha Tripathi. The former is lying T6 with Khushi while Neha is T8 another amateur Asmitha Sathish, a dozen strokes behind the leader.
Back in the pack Sonam Chugh and Pranavi Urs made a solid recovery in the second round. Sonam was even on Thursday, working off an 84 in the opening round. Pranavi had an 83 on her first round card and swung it ten shots upward on Thursday with a timely 73.
