Daniel Chopra takes two-shot lead

Daniel Chopra took a two-shot lead after the first round of the Shubhkamna Champions tournament, an event hosted by Jeev Milkha Singh, here today.

Ajeetesh Sandhu (66) and Sri Lanka’s Anura Rohana (66) lie at the second in the Rs 60 lakh event at the Noida Golf Club.

Gaganjeet Bhullar, widely tipped as Jeev Milkha Singh’s successor in Indian golf was fourth at 67, while Jyoti Randhawa, Shiv Kapur and Mukesh Kumar carded 68 each. Jeev himself carded 69 and was lying tied eighth with Anirban Lahiri and Abhijit Chadha. Arjun Atwal shot 70. ‘The real business is next two days, but the scores were great today and the conditions excellent. More than anything the response to this event is overwhelming and I want to take it to next level, maybe Asian Tour,’ said Jeev.

The second round will see Jeev go out with Atwal and Randhawa, while Chopra will play with Lahiri and Bhullar.
