Mumbai: The local gang Willy Warriors, hole after hole, continued to turn the heads of fans, partners and teammates on the first day of second infantry round of Puravankara Touché Golf Legaue West Zone at Bombay Presidency Golf Club today. Warriors fired a sensational score of 128-over 828 for the two days of total of 1698 to take 37 shots lead from Pune Pirates who were at top after the first round played at Poona Golf Club.
The humid weather didn’t allow Pune Gangs to play at par as Pune Pirates, who were 13 shots ahead of the runners up gang, slipped to second position with the score of 188-over for the two days total of 1735. Though, Pune Devils tried to give their best but still they could only manage to finish one shot behind at 176-over 1736 for third place. Another Pune Gang, Pune Peshwas was fourth with 253-over for the total of 1847.
AnuYusuf from the leading gang, who is also a lady captain at Willingdon Golf Club said, “We are the only gang playing from Willingdon and I am proud to be a part of Willy Warriors gang. I started playing golf in 2003 and I didn’t even realize how and when this game became a part of my life. The way we played today, I have already started seeing myself packing up my bags for the gladiator round in Sri Lanka and I want to say thanks to all my team members to give me this feeling.”
Another gang who travelled all the way from Ahemdabad to be a part of PTGL seemed out of contention from the first round. Siddharth Naik, Captain of Taega Pencil Pushers Gang said, “We are a very young team of Ahemdabad and we just wanted to rub our hands at other golf courses of India. The main reason we see ourselves out of the Cavalry round is mainly a bad round played by all of us at Poona Golf Club. I wish Touché could come to Gujrat next year so that we all can be prepared in a full strength of 24 gangs.”
Tomorrow will be the day when top four teams will be announced and gearing up for the Cavalry round which will be played day after tomorrow at the Bombay Presidency Golf Club.
