....... Vani Kapoor, Tvesa Malik, Amandeep Drall, and Diksha Dagar are the Indian quartet at the KPMG Womens Irish Open golf tournament in Darmstadt, New Zealand.Vani has put together a solid showing this season, while Diksha, who showed a return to form, shot even par 72 and was the best among the Indians at tied-67th.Tvesa, who hasn't recovered this season, was 1-over 73 in T-78, and Amandeep was T-93.On the 15th and 16th, Vani had two birdies, but on the second and 14th, she dropped a few shots.

On the first day, Alexandra Swayne and Lina Boqvist shot opening rounds of 7-under 65 to finish at the top of the leader board.Following the morning's rain, the duo enjoyed the best of the weather at Dromoland Castle, with all afternoon sunshine.LET rookie Swayne started her round on the 10th tee, but her only bogey of the day came at the 12th, when she rolled in four birdies.On day one, the United States Virgin Islands native carded a round of seven-under-par thanks to further birdies on the second, fifth, seventh, and ninth holes.

On the second hole, the 31-year-old dropped her only shot of the day before birding on the third, sixth, and seventh hole.On six-under-par, three players are in a tie for third position, England's Annabel Dimmock, Czechias Klara Spilkova, and Frances Anne-Lise Caudal all shooting rounds of 66.Dimmock had an interesting start to the day on her first hole, but it was quickly forgotten by a pair of eagle twos on the 12th and 15th holes.On five-under-par, seven players are in contention for sixth place, including home favorite and Solheim Cup star Leona Maguire.
