Akshay Neranjen clinched the first leg of the RBG Champions Golf Development Tour while Avani Prashanth won both teens and amateur titles in the girls category here on Thursday.

Overnight leader Neranjen, 19, initially brought in a final card of 1-under 71 but with his group being penalised one stroke because of failing to maintain the pace of play, had to settle for a level par 72 at the Prestige Golfshire. However, that did not stop him from capturing the amateur title.

Neranjen, who finished with a tournament score of 3-under 213 was a two shot winner over challenger Aryan Roopa Anand. Raunil Kukar was a far third at 5-over 221, despite a final round of 1-under 71.

Anand, meanwhile, took home the Teen Category with Ananjan Kaushik and Tej Gangavaraju finishing in the second and third positions, respectively.

Avani, who brought in a level par card of 72 won both the Teens and Amateur titles in the girls category with Jasmine Shekar finishing behind her.
