Pune: Shagun Narain, who is looking for her maiden professional title on the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour, took the opening day’s honours in the first leg of the Hero WPG Tour 2023 at the Poona Club Golf Course. The course, which is hosting an event for the first time since 2021, did not yield low scores with Shagun’s even par 71 being the best card of the day.
