Newport: Jyoti Randhawa carded a
topsy-turvy one-over 72 to lie tied 59th after the opening
round of the European Tour`s Celtic Manor Open golf tournament
Randhawa`s card comprised three birdies, a couple of
bogeys and a double bogey.
On a roller-coaster day, Randhawa stumbled to a bogey on
the fourth before picking up a birdie on the next hole to make
the turn even-par.
On his way back, Randhawa gained a shot on the 11th but a
bogey on the 13th, followed by a double-bogey on the 14th
ruined his card.
But he did manage to sign off positively by striking a
birdie on the 18th hole.
England`s Chris Wood grabbed the sole lead with a
six-under 65 after the opening round. He was followed a stroke
behind by the trio of Andrew Dodt, Bradley Dredge and Soren
