Holzhäusern (Switzerland), September 16

India’s Diksha Dagar played a steady round with just two birdies against one bogey as she opened the Swiss Ladies Open with a card of one-under 70 to lie lying T-27 here.

The top Indian of the day, however, was Amandeep Drall, who opened at the 10th with a birdie and closed the day with a birdie on ninth. In between, she hit two more birdies and two bogeys for a 2-under 69 that put her in T-14th place.

The third Indian in the field, Vani Kapoor carded one-over 72 and was T-53.

There are 126 players in the 54-hole stroke play event, where the cut will be applied after two rounds with top 60 professionals and ties moving into the final day.

France’s Anne-Charlotte Mora fired a nine-under 62 to take a two-shot lead at the Swiss Ladies Open at Golfpark Holzhäusern.

It was a day of low scoring in Switzerland, as Mora went bogey-free in the afternoon and posted nine birdies to storm to the top of the leaderboard.

Her compatriot Nastasia Nadaud set the clubhouse lead earlier with a round of seven-under par. But Mora overtook her later.

Diksha, getting ready for home Open, the Hero Women’s Indian Open, where Amandeep Drall was the runner-up in 2022, started from the back nine like the other two Indians. While Diksha dropped just one bogey, she missed a lot of birdie chances and made two through the day.

Diksha is currently lying third on Race to Costa Del Sol, the Order of Merit for the Ladies European Tour.

Amandeep and Vani have had mixed seasons as they get ready for their home open and also go on to save their playing rights for 2024.

In a tie for second on seven-under par sit Nadaud and Norway’s Madelene Stavnar. Both went bogey-free like the outright leader.

Three players sit in a tie for fourth on five-under par, a trio which includes Wales’ Chloe Williams, Germany’s Alexandra Försterling, and Sweden’s Moa Folke.
