Sharmila makes stunning comeback

Sharmila Nicollet carded the only sub-par round of the day, a three-under 67, to grab the halfway lead at the Hero Women's Professional Golf Tour at the Tollygunge Club here.

Trailing her by a margin of one shot are Amandeep Drall and Vani Kapoor with identical scores of 143. The Rs 7,00,000 event will culminate tomorrow.

Sharmila made an impressive comeback from eighth position to take the lead after the second round. She started with aplomb, carding a bogey free front nine, with birdies on the 2nd, 3rd and 7th holes.

In her back nine, she carded a birdie and a bogey apiece on the 13th and 16th holes respectively, to put herself in a strong position to win her first event of the current season.

Panchkula's Amandeep Drall played with utmost caution, carding an even-par front-nine. She struck a birdie on the 13th hole, but could not sustain the momentum and dropped shots on the 14th, 16th and 17th holes to finish her round with a score of two over 72.
