Taipei: Chiragh Kumar (in pic), coming off a long off-season following struggles with injuries and form, opened the Yeangder Tournament Players Championships with a fine four-under 68 that gave him a share of third place at the end of the first round in Taipei.

Chiragh, a teammate of Gaganjeet Bhullar and Anirban Lahiri at the 2006 Asian Games, when they won the team silver, closed the round with a satisfying eagle on the 18th after three birdies and a bogey on the front-nine.

Chiragh lived up to the adage 'beware the sick golfer' when he battled flu to card a round of 68 that was highlighted by an eagle-three on the 18th hole.
