Kapil Kumar takes the round one lead with a 67

Kapil Kumar of Delhi shot a five-under-67 to take the round one lead in the PGTI Feeder Tour event being played at the Aravalli Golf Club in Faridabad, Haryana. Abhinav Lohan of Faridabad is one shot behind the leader in second place.

Kapil Kumar got going on the par-5 third hole as he landed the ball in two shots on the green. Even though Kapil missed a 10-footer for eagle, he salvaged a birdie on the third. The 20-year-old then drove the green on the par-4 ninth to add another birdie to his card. Kumar set up another 10-feet eagle putt on the 12th thanks to some excellent driving. However, he managed to pick up a birdie on the 12th. A couple of good chip shots earned him birdies on the 16th and 18th.

“I’ve been in good form with the driver over the last few events. I drove the ball really well today and therefore set up a couple of eagle putts from 10 feet. I’m carrying forward the confidence after posting two top-20s this season,” said Kapil.

Local lad Abhinav Lohan is in second place. His round of four-under-68 included six birdies and two bogeys.

Delhi’s Wasim Khan and Arjun Singh Chaudhri of Noida are in tied third with matching scores of three-under-69.
