Mumbai: Overnight leader Sharmila Nicollet continued her fine form to open up a five shot lead over Vani Kapoor on the second day of the fourth leg of the Hero Women's Professional Golf Tour 2014 at the Bombay Presidency Golf Club (BPGC), here on Wednesday. Sharmila, who has often surrendered the advantage from a strong position, was in sublime form, carding the only under par score of the tournament so far -- two under 68 and a total of 139 to retain the top spot.
Sharmila, who has had problems with her consistency this season was in no mood to repeat her mistakes and displayed tremendous gameplay. Her consistency is reflected by the fact that she had just a single bogey on the fourth hole and carded three birdies on the third, seventh and eleventh holes. With a five shot advantage over second placed Vani, Sharmila is aiming for her first win of the season.
Vani played another steady round of two over 72, with a birdie on the 15th and three bogeys on the 10th, 11th, and 14th holes, finishing with a total of 144. It will be an uphill task for the talented Delhi golfer to catch up with Sharmila on Thursday.
