New Delhi: Consistency paid off for Sharmila Nicollet who carded a modest two-over 74 to grab the opening day lead in the fifth leg of the Women`s Professional Golf Tour here today.

Ladies European Tour player Smriti Mehra returned 77 to
lie three shots behind Sharmila.

Sitting at third spot was Nalini Singh Siwach with a
score of 78, while long-hitting Saaniya Sharma returned 79
after missing several fairways with her driver.

Tied at 79 was Bengluru based professional Nikki Ponappa.
