New Delhi: There was a three-way tie for the lead at the end of the opening round at the Panasonic Open India golff event as two Australians, Kieran Pratt and Wade Ormsby, and Singaporean Lam Chih Bing shared the honours with rounds of five-under 67 each at the demanding and windy Delhi Golf Club here Thursday.
Two shots behind them was the best Indian in sole fourth, S.S.P. Chowrasia, a two-time winner of co-sanctioned events, at three-under 69, while seven players were at two-under 70 and another 17 at one-under 71.
While Ormsby and Pratt came back with bogey-free rounds, Lam had one bogey on the 12th. Pratt also had an eagle, one of the six - including two by debutant Indian S. Chikkarangappa - that landed on the day besides a stunning hole-in-one by rank outside Nabin Mandal, who did little else of note in his round of 77.
