Gangjee fires 66 to go top at Panasonic Open

Home favourite Rahil Gangjee fired a brilliant six-under-par 66 to seize a two-shot lead after the opening round of Panasonic Open golf on Thursday. Treating his round like a game of chess, the amiable Indian birdied the last two holes in near benign morning conditions at the Delhi Golf Club to put himself in position to end a 10-year title drought on the Asian Tour.

Title holder Wade Ormsby of Australia birdied the last hole from close range after missing an eagle chance to tie for second place on 68 with Singapore’s Choo Tze Huang, Bangladeshi Zamal Hossain and Rashid Khan of India, who won at the Delhi course in March.

Thailand’s Jazz Janewattananond and Australia’s Unho Park were amongst seven players tied in sixth place on identical 69s, three shots off the pace in the event sanctioned by the Asian Tour and PGTI.
