TOKYO : It was a mixed day for India in the Tokyo Olympics men's golf competition. While Anirban Lahiri overcame a shaky start to post a solid first round score of 4-under 67 for a share of eighth position, countryman Udayan Mane struggled to a 76 to end the day in 60th position.
Lahiri, who is making his second appearance in the Olympics after Rio 2016, dropped an opening bogey before finding his stride with a run of four birdies over five holes to make the turn in 33. He sank two more birdies on the 15th and 16th holes against a second bogey at a weather-hit Kasumigaseki Country Club.
Austrian Sepp Straka produced a flawless 63, sprinkled with eight birdies on his card, to hold the first round lead as 60 of the best golfers from around the world chase Olympic medals this week. IANS
