Overnight leader Tvesa Malik weathered a rocky start to maintain her lead after two rounds of the seventh leg of Hero Women's Pro Golf Tour here today.
Tvesa, who shot an even par 72 on first day, went 4-over 76 for the second day at the Prestige Golfshire course but her lead increased from one to two shots.
Her total of 148 was two shots clear of second-placed amateur Seher Atwal (71), whose card was the first sub-par score of the event, and Amandeep Drall (77). Both Seher and Amandeep are 6-over 150.
Smriti Mehra (75) and Asian Games-bound amateur Ridhima Dilawari (76) were Tied-4th at 151, while Gursimar Badwal (81) was sixth at 154. Neha Tripathi (76), amateur Pranavi Urs (80), Afshan Fatima (78) and Anisha Padukone (84) occupied the seventh to 10th places.
In the final round tomorrow, Tvesa, looking for her second win of the season, will be in the lead group with Seher and Amandeep, while Smriti, Ridhima and Gursimar will be in the group ahead of them.
