New Delhi, Dec 04: It was really disappointing when the defending champion C. Muniyappa and double time PGA Tour winner Daniel Chopra, who were kicked out of the Hero Honda Indian Open, while on the other hand Manav Jaini used the home turf with a very good effect, and ensured himself to be the contender for the title at the Delhi Golf Club on Friday. Arjun Atwal, the other winner of PGA Tour in the Open, made very good use of the lost ground, with much improved three under 69 to lay four shots off lead at the middle stage. Atwal who was ranked 45th overnight, is now placed at 18th position, with five others which includes Ashok Kumar and Firoz Ali.

“I was very sharp and effective today and very less rusty,” said the excited Atwal at the end of the day, which was well honoured and respected by the Indian Golf Union (IGU) for his brilliant performance in PGA Tour. “This is just the first step and very early journey, Indian Golf has a very huge promise and there would be many players coming up to take up the centre stage” said Atwal who told the crowd who were gathered around in the function. By getting the lead in the second round, Atwal though will be with Korean young man Baek Seuk-hyun and England’s Simon Griffith (138) who was positioned in the same line to win their debut Asian title tour.

Manav was accompanied in third place by two Americans Anthony Kong (67) and Ben Fox (69). With them is Sweden’s Richard Karlberg (69), who is doing a pretty good job and is at a chase for the second win at the Delhi venue after the SAIL open this earlier year. “This is my home ground, so I know it pretty well enough. I think any score under 10 would a victory score. A very positive attitude at this place helps a lot.” said Jaini.

Hello everyone this is Ronak Parekh and I’m currently student of S.Y.B.M.M. I’m 20 years old from Mumbai. I choose my career in B.M.M because I always wanted to do something which is of my interest. And my passion has always been sports especially cricket and F1. I really want to be linked with sports in my future. B.M.M course gives the opportunity in journalism from where I can move to sports category. When I was child I always used to play and watch cricket a lot which usually most of the people does. I gained my interest in F1 due to only one man and that was none other than seven time world champion Michael Schumacher. Actually I’m also very passionate about cars so it is really fun when I see this sport. Today I’m really excited about getting an opportunity to do internship for three months with the sports mirror, where I will have full freedom to express my views and opinions regarding every sport. I definitely will try my best to write the articles as good as possible which would be worth interesting for readers. I really whole heartedly thanking the sports mirror again for giving me this vital opportunity and I promise I will make the most of it.
