Hyderabad, 26th September 2022: Amidst the rain and thunder that is soaking the city of Hyderabad, the Sreenidhi University Telangana Premier Golf League got off to a bright start in its second running at the Hyderabad Golf Association course. Monsoon showers have given the course a shiny glow and the 128, mostly corporate, golfers rejoiced in its brilliance on Sunday. Team MYSA, the winners from last season, got off to another commanding start. They collected all eight points in the first round to lead the table after round one.
Playing in the afternoon session, MYSA came out trumps in all four doubles better ball matches. Madhav Kota, last year’s MVP, continued to produce impressive control and skill. Playing with Deepak Gullapalli, he ran away to a commanding 6&4 victory over CV Ramana and VVSN Raju of the KLR Kings.
Enthused by their teammates, Naveen Gullapalli and Sumit Jaiswal also clinched a 6&4 win over RavikanthKonteti and Ram Musunuri. The family affair in MYSA continued to flourish with Swetha Gullapalli and Anil Yamani taking a 5&4 win over Muthyam Reddy and Chakradhar Gadde.
Vasu Merugu and Sathish Cheeti made it a clean sweep for MYSA, with a 5&3 thumping of Kasi Vidyasagar and Srinivas Bikkina. KLR Kings drew a blank against a dominant MYSA, as the defending champions sailed comfortably to the top of the table.
Glendale Golfers, last year’s runners-up, had to content themselves with an even split against Villaggio Highlanders. The two teams shared four points each, winning two matches each in the morning session.
Vardhaman Eagle Hunters came out second best in the first round. The Hunters won three close matches and split the other point. That helped them take seven points off Team Labonel, conceding just one with a resilient effort all around.
The second round will be played on Wednesday. It will be another round of doubles matches, better ball, as the teams look to get away to a breezy start.
