Randhawa turns clock back, leads

Jyoti Randhawa turned the clock back as he holed 23 putts en-route to a six-under-par 64 to grab the first round lead at the US 1.3 million Dollars Hong Kong Open, here on Thursday. The 2002 Asian Tour number one said he ‘putted his heart out’ in a round of seven birdies and one bogey to take a one-shot lead over Angelo Que of the Philippines at the Hong Kong Golf Club.

Anirban Lahiri, second on the Order of Merit had a tough day with a round of 75 and needs to come back with a good second round to make the cut as he was 139th. Among the other Indians Rahil Gangjee and Shiv Kapur shot two-under 68 each to be tied 27th, while SSP Chowrasia (69) was lying tied 44th. Things were not too good for other Indians as Chiragh Kumar (71) was 83rd, Jeev Milkha Singh and Rashid Khan carded 73 each.
