BA golfer Vikrant Chandra will need to improve in the second round today in his bid to make the cut at the lucrative $1.4million New Zealand Open Championship.

Chandra, who is making his debut in the tournament, scored five over par 77 in the first round at The Hills Golf Club in Queenstown.

He made a bad start with two bogies on the first and third holes before regaining his composure to end the first nine holes with two over par 36.

Chandra failed to find his rhythm on the back nine recording three over par 39 to be tied on 114 position.

Professional Golfers Association of New Zealand national events manager Jim Clelland said Chandra gained a spot in the event after the final qualifier on Monday.
