Noida: Patna's young golfer Aman Raj who turned pro only a year ago after making a name for himself in the amateur circuit for the past few years, led the pack with an impressive seven under par 65 in the first round of the PGTI Players Championship at Noida Golf Course on Tuesday.

Showing utmost confidence from his last week's remarkable 15-under for a tie for the seventh place at the Rambagh Golf Club in Jaipur, Aman took early advantage by carding nine birdies on the first 72 holes, along with two bogies, for a score of 65.

He led Delhi’s Honey Baisoya and Gurgaon's Shivendra Singh Sisodia by a stroke.

By the time he finished the 8th hole, he was at 5-under that included some very impressive long putts. He bogied the ninth but he followed it by four birdies that put him on the top of the leaderboard setting the scene for an exciting second round on Wednesday.

"I was hitting well today without missing too many greens and when I did miss the green, I followed it up with some crucial chips to par the hole. I also took full advantage of all four par five holes birdying each one of them," Aman, who is coached by his father Shashi Raj Sinha, said.
