Shat Mishra shot level-par on the par-72 Lodhi Course for the second day running to walk away with the top honours in Category ‘A’ Boys on the final day of the 5th Junior NCR Cup on Friday.
Organised by the Delhi Golf Society at the Delhi Golf Club, Mishra, overnight a rung away from the top spot, finished with a total score of 224 (80, 72, 72), one better than Rakshit Dahiya (81, 73, 71) and Vedant Sirohi (75, 72, 78) at 225.

The top-three in ‘A’ Girls read as follows — Mannat Brar (231), Hazel Chauhan (235), and Ceerat Kang and Keya Badugu at 237.
Despite a final day 85, Ranveer Mitroo completed a wire-to-wire win in ‘B’ Boys, albeit with a reduced victory margin of two shots over Kartik Singh who finished with 231. Kanav Chauhan was third at 235. ‘B’ Girls ended on a close note with Anvvi Dahiyya, 243, finished just a shot ahead of Henaaz Khera. Shreshtha Shukla followed with a three-day total of 251.
Shifting focus to the Peacock Course, Prince Bainsla followed Thursday’s 65 with a 63 to total at 128 and complete a seven-shot win over Kairav Singh. The third spot was shared by Mudit Aggarwal and Sohang Har Kantor at 140.
In girls in the section, there was little to separate Kashika Senthil and Parnika Sharma, but the former prevailed by a shot at 148. Myra Kumar and Anee Goyal shared the third place at 157.
Opening with a 63 on the par-62 course, Chaitanya Pandey would have been disappointed with today’s 70, but nonetheless won ‘D’ Boys comfortably (133) over Raajveer Singh (149). Vedant Paul finished at 150. There was a yawning gap between Shiksha Jain (135), Dalisha Chettry (154) and Shubhika Sachdeva (167) in ‘D’ Girls.
The youngest golfers in the field put up an impressive show with Kabir Goyal (67) surging ahead of Sahib Aujla and Samar Baijal (69) in ‘E’ Boys. In girls, Amaira Gulati was the top name with a two-day total of 71. Bhuvi Srivastava (87) and Naira Chettry (92) were next in a field that had just three players.
