Indian golfer Jyoti Randhawa has a two-stroke lead over two other players after the first round of the Indian Masters golf tournament in Delhi, the European PGA Tour's first event on the subcontinent.

Randhawa had two eagles and three birdies in his round of 7-under-par 65.

England's Richard Finch is tied with Irishman Damien McGrane for second place at 5-under-par, 67. Finch had an eagle, five birdies and two bogeys in his round, while McGrane had seven birdies and two bogeys.

World number four Ernie Els of South Africa struggled on the Delhi Golf Club Course, firing a 3-over-par 75. The South African is part of a group of players tied for 77th place, 10 strokes off the lead.

Els is looking to bounce back from his final-round collapse in last week's Dubai Desert classic, where he finished tied for third place after bogeying the final hole.
