Rashid lies tied second, Chiragh 5th
Indian golfer Rashid Khan, making his first appearance since mid-March, carded a superb four-under 68 to be placed tied second, two shots off the leader Andrew Dodt, after the first round of AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open here on Thursday.
A two-time winner on Asian Tour, Rashid, who was tied sixth at Hero Indian Open in his last appearance on either the Asian or European Tours, had four birdies against three bogeys on a rather wind-swept day at the Four Seasons golf club.
The sole leader was Andrew Dodt, who mastered the windy conditions, to take the lead with a six-under 66 on a day when only 21 players came under par. Dodt, winner of the 2015 True Thailand Classic Presented in March, lead by two over Rashid and Bangladesh’s Siddikur Rahman.
