Hero Order of Merit leader Vani Kapoor is placed second with a score of one over 73, whereas Chandigarh golfer Amandeep Drall ended round one at third place.

Hero Order of Merit leader Vani Kapoor had an inconsistent front nine carding a bogey on the very first hole, but came back strongly to card three consecutive birdies on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th holes. However, a double bogey on the 5th hole cost her dearly. She followed it with a birdie but had two more bogeys on the 7th and 9th holes.
