Chandigarh, November 21
Brig H.S. Gill, M.P. Singh and Col R.S. Grewal shared the lead at four-over par 76 on the opening day of the Chandigarh Golfing Tour on the par-72 greens of the Chandigarh Golf Club today.

Although all three carded 76, Brigadier Gill clinched the best card prize because of a better back nine in which he shot three birdies and conceded an equal number of bogies for a par score.

Although 41 NRIs had teed off, it seems the jet lag kept them away from good scores. The best card in this category was by Amardeep Sangha who returned a 10-over par 82.

Among the NRIs were 25 golfers from the USA. Others were from the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Kenya, Ghana and the UAE.

Organised by the Chandigarh Golf Association in collaboration with the tourism departments of the Chandigarh administration and Haryana, the tournament is being held to promote golfing facilities available in Chandigarh and nearby areas.

M.P. Singh and Harinderpal Bedi of Panchkula tied for the best nett score carding 64, with another Chandigarh golfer Charan Bal carding a nett 66 for the third spot.

Harinderpal Bedi came very near to scoring a hole-in-one when his drive on the par-3 eighth hole landed barely 1 ft away from the cup. However, he clinched the day’s prize for being nearest to the pin.

Jayant Singh of Nalagarh hit the longest drive of 273 yards.

Tomorrow, the golfers will converge on the greens of the Panchkula Golf Club for the second round of the tournament which will be a gunshot start. The third and final round will be played on the challenging course at the Chandi Mandir cantonment where the prize distribution will be held.
