Pune, March 23 (IANS) Delhi golfer Vani Kapoor consolidated her lead, carding one-over (72) after the second round of the Rs 6,00,000-Hero Women’s Professional Tour at the Poona Club Golf Course here on Thursday.

Trailing her by a margin of seven shots is Panchkula’s Amandeep Drall with a total score of 149 after 36 holes.

Vani had a shaky start, carding bogeys on the third and fifth holes, but quickly regained composure and carded birdies on the sixth and seventh to neutralise the damage in her front nine.

On her way in, she carded a birdie on the 14th while dropping shots on the 17th and 18th holes to finish the second round with an even par total of 142. With a comfortable cushion of seven shots, Vani is well placed to annex her second title of the season.

Amandeep carded the lone birdie of her front nine on the third hole, while dropping shots on the second, sixth and seventh. On the return, she carded birdies on the 11th and 13th, but undid the good work with a bogey on the 12th and a double on the 16th to finish the round with a score of three-over (74).

Bengaluru’s Sharmila Nicollet is placed third after the second round with a total score of 151. Her card on the day included birdies on the eighth, 11th and 13th holes, while dropping shots on the second, fourth and seventh. She also carded a triple bogey on the fifth hole.

Gurgaon’s Gaurika Bishnoi and Kapurthala’s Gursimar Badwal are tied fourth with identical scores of 153 after the second day’s play.
