Mumbai: Veteran golfer Smriti Mehra made a remarkable comeback to lead the field at the close of the second day`s play in the Hero Women`s pro golf tour here Wednesday.

Pallavi Jain, who was placed second after the first round had bad day and carded 10 over 75 in the second round to be placed fourth with an overall score of 140.
