Columbus, US, Jul 25 (UNI) Ace Indian golfer Arjun Atwal is in a precarious situation as he ran over the last five holes and finished with a round of five-over 76 to be tied 116th at the inaugural Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational here.
Atwal started the day with a birdie but gave that away on the sixth to turn in at even par.
A birdie on the tenth was followed by a double bogey on par-4 11th.
He then bogeyed the 14th and 15th and double bogeyed the 16th to drop four shots in three holes.
A birdie on the 17th was small consolation as he bogeyed the last one again.
Americans Bryce Molder, Bill Lunde, Kelly Grunewald and Dave Schultz were tied for the lead with four-under-par 67 each in the first round.
Scott Gardiner and Marc Leishman of Australia, New Zealand's Phil Tataurangi, and Rich Barcelo of US were tied for fifth at three-under 68.
