despite poor opening round

Dagar, who was tied fifth at the NSW Open a week earlier, carded 76 in the
first round in difficult conditions, but her six-under took her to
two-under.

Promising Indian golfer Diksha Dagar made amends for her poor first round
with a six-under 66 to move into second place after 36 holes at the
Investec South African Women’s Open.

The 19-year-old former World Deaf Championship winner and 2017 Summer
Deaflympics silver medallist showed none of the first round nerves as she
went around the course in 66 strokes.

note:
she had to decide between pro golf and a NCAA-I golf scholarship and she
chose becoming a pro
