One of the pre-event favourites, Manu Gandas, who has won the last three events, shot 73 and was way behind.
In Category B, Asawa also had five birdies, three on front nine and two more on back nine. But he also dropped a bogey on the par-5 12th hole.
Viraj Madappa, a local lad shot 69, as did Shivnaren Srinivasan and Mohan Sardar in Category B.
