Bengaluru, July 21 (IANS) Promising golfer Amandeep Drall carded an even par round of 72 on the second day to maintain the lead in the Rs 6,00,000 Hero women’s Pro championship at the Karnataka Golf Association here on Thursday.

Trailing the Panchkula golfer by a margin of eight shots is Gursimar Badwal with a total score of 150 after the midway stage.

Badwal carded three over 75 in the second round to retain her second position. She carded two birdies on the fourth and sixth holes while dropping a single shot on the seventh hole in her front nine.
