Disappointing start for Chawrasia in Belgium

Press Trust of India  |  Antwerp (Belgium) 

India's SSP Chawrasia opened with a below-par

five-over 77 to make a disappointing start to his campaign at the inaugural Belgian Knockout tournament here.

Chawrasia had two birdies, four bogeys and two doubles in his opening round at Rinkven International Club. He will play his second round later in the day.

Meanwhile, set the clubhouse target on day two as the weekend began to take shape.

The innovative new format on will see the field of 144 play for 36 holes. At the end of that, top 64 will advance to a nine-hole play knockout, with the winner being crowned on Sunday after a total of 90 holes.

Spaniard Campillo carded a second consecutive 67 to get to eight-under and secure his place over the weekend with room to spare.

The top 16 players today will be handed a seeding, meaning that if they finish on the same score as their opponent in the first knockout round, they will advance to the last 32.

Home hero Thomas Detry, Australian Dimitrios Papadatos, Frenchman and were all well placed for a seeding, two shots off the lead.
