“It was a good day yesterday as in condi­tions. We didn’t have rain like last year and that was a blessing,” Lee said.

“The greens were a bit bumpy and that made putting very tricky for everyone.”

Tournament director Rohit Chandra said close to 80 golfers turn out during the 51 st RC Manubhai sponsored event.

He said it was a good sight to see top golfers in action at the historic club event.

“There were over 80 golfers that participat­ed in the RC Manubhai sponsored event,” he said.
