India's Rahil Gangjee witnessed a rough start in the WNB Golf Classic on the Web.com Tour, formerly the Nationwide, as he opened with a three-over 75 that put him way back on the leaderboard.
Gangjee had an eventful, even if not pleasant round, as he had three birdies, four bogeys and one double bogey on the closing 18th.
Lying one-over after 15, he bogeyed the 16th, birdied the 17th and double bogeyed the 18th for a 75 that will make it difficult for him to make the cut as he lies 119th.
Aaron Goldberg and Jamie Lovemark carded six-under 66 each and shared the first round lead, while Kiwi Tim Wilkinson, Andres Gonzales and Luke List were one behind at 67.
List is on second position on the Money list and could overtake Casey Wittenberg, who is not playing this week.
Sharmila opens with a steady round of 72 in Tenerife
Sharmila Nicollet turned in a strong finish with two birdies in her last three holes to register an even par 72 in the opening round of the Tenerife Open de España Femenino at Golf Las Américas here.
Sharmila, who needs a few good finishes to ensure she keeps her Ladies European Tour card, was lying 40th after yesterday's first round.
Australian Nikki Garrett set a blistering pace as she opened with a career-low round of eight under par 64.
Sharmila started on the 10th and bogeyed the 11th, but she then parred the next 11 holes to be still at one-over after 13.
A second bogey on par-3 fifth put her two over, but she rallied with a birdie on par-5 seventh and another one on par-4 ninth, which was her closing hole. That put her at even par and the cut looked likely at one-over.
The 28-year-old Garrett was out in the first group from the 10th tee and played flawless golf on a beautiful day with temperatures at 27 degrees and little breeze.
