Gurgaon, Sept16 (UNI) Abhinav Lohan carded the best round with a five under par 67 to charge ahead of the field on the opening day of the LG Golden Greens Amateur Golf here today.
Abhinav shot the lone under par round of the day with the second best score being five strokes behind at even par.

Abhinav got off to a blistering start and it could have been an even better round for him but for two missed opportunities on the 7th and 11th where he missed short putts for birdie.
