Amandeep Drall carded an even par 72 in the final round to win the sixth leg of the Rs 6,00,000 Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour at the Oxford Golf Resort in Pune on Friday.

Amandeep played consistent golf through the week for her first title of the season. Smriti Mehra finished runner-up with a total of 220, followed by Neha Tripathi at 221.

 

Amadeep had a shaky start with an early bogey. However, the professional from Panchkula grew in confidence as the day progressed and fired three consecutive birdies on either side of the turn.

Despite two dropped shots, Amandeep held on for a four-shot win over Smriti with a total of 216 after 54 holes.

Smriti started impressively with three early birdies along with a double bogey. However, she could not sustain the momentum and two further bogeys and a double ended her charge.

Kolkata’s Neha Tripathi carded a one under 71 to take third place. She carded a birdie and a bogey on her front nine. She added three birdies to her tally but dropped two more shots to finish on 221.

 

Overseas player Kiran Matharu finished fourth with 224 and a three-over card for the day, hitting four bogeys against one birdie.

Rookie Trisha Sunil took fifth place with 225 and a final day score of 75.

Delhi’s Vani Kapoor and Mehar Atwal finished tied sixth on 226, followed by Pune’s Shweta Galannde at 227. Jaipur’s Afshan Fatima and Hero Motocorp sponsored Sharmila Nicollet were tied ninth at 230.

The Tour now moves to the National Capital Region for the seventh leg to be played at the Classic Golf & Country Club, Gurgaon from March 15.
