Dagar ends day one on tied 17th spot in South Africa women's golf


Press Trust of India  |  Capetown 

India's Diksha Dagar produced a decent round on difficult conditions to be placed tied 17th at the end of the first day at the Investec South African Women's Open golf tournament here.

Dagar, one of the four Indians playing in the event, shot two-over 74 on a difficult scoring day, with only two players in the 126-player field producing sub-par rounds at the Westlake Golf Club.

The afternoon saw winds, which gusted over 50 kilometres per hour at times.

The leaders were Lina Boqvist from Sweden and Austrian Sarah Schober, who made the most of an early start to set a clubhouse target with rounds of one-under 71 that held on for the day.

Millie Saroha, making her start outside India this year, shot 77 and was just inside the expected cut line. Astha Madan (81) and Tvesa Malik (81) are the other Indians in the field.

Boqvist and Schober will head into the second round of the Sunshine Ladies Tour and Ladies European Tour co-sanctioned event with a slender one shot advantage over three-time champion Lee-Anne Pace from South Africa, Spain's Silvia Banon and Sweden's Julia Engstrom.
