Atwal tied 97th, Daniel Chopra tied 139th in Byron Nelson

Written by: Staff

Texas, May 12 (UNI) A double bogey greeted Arjun Atwal on his opening hole and a poor front nine saw the Orlando-based Indian return a card of three-over 73 for the tied 97th place in the first round of the Byron Nelson Championship at Irving here.

Atwal, who was out of action for a while, double bogeyed the par-four opening hole and after a birdie on the fifth, dropped two shots over the next three holes and the breezy conditions a at the TPC at Las Colinas -- one of two courses being used for the opening two rounds -- made things even more difficult for him.

His back nine was an average affair with a bogey on the 15th and a birdie in the next hole.

Meanwhile, at the Cottonwood Valley Course, things went horribly wrong for Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra who returned six-over 76.

Chopra had an ominous start as the former Asian Tour regular double bogeyed the first and the penultimate holes and apart from a couple of birdies, he dropped four bogeys in between to round off a hugely disappointing day.

At the top of the table, Australian Adam Scott seemed unperturbed by the windy condition and mixed seven birdies with two bogeys for a five-under 65 while Steve Lowery's was a flawless display as he picked up five shots at the Cottonwood Valley Course to join the world number nine at the top.
