Manav Das (Ambala), Keshav Mishra (Delhi), Gurbaaz Mann (Chandigarh), Gagan Verma (Delhi), Harinder Gupta (Chandigarh), Vikrant Chopra (Delhi), Simarjeet Singh (Noida), Jasjeet Singh (Noida) and Shiv Kapoor (US-based).

On day one on Thursday, Shiv Kapoor led the field with a score of 4 under, followed by Keshav Mishra and Harinder Gupta, who returned scores of one over level par. Under tough and windy conditions, Shiv Kapoor showed his class throughout, except the eighth hole, where he got a double bogey, that got his score down from six birdies to four for the day.

Shiv Kapoor maintained his brilliant form on second day too, as he made use of the cool climatic conditions, and created a course record of 8 under to finish the day at the score of 64. He eagled on the fourth hole, and made birdies

on the first, 12th, 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th holes.
