Potomac : Rahil Gangjee bogeyed half the course and had no birdies either as he stumbled to a nine-over 79 in the first round of the Web. Com`s Neediest Kids Championship here.
Starting on the 10th, he bogeyed five times on the back-nine and four more times on the front-nine to literally end his chances of making the cut.
Jason Gore shot seven-under 63 and took the lead after the first round. He was brilliant on the greens and reaped big benefits.
Australian Alistair Presnell and Michael Connell of US were tied second with Will Wilcox at 65 at the renovated TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm.
