Aditi finishes tied-31 on professional debut

Aditi Ashok rounded off her debut appearance as a professional with a final round of one-over 74 to finish tied 31st at the Oates Victorian Open here.

This will be the first cheque for the 17-year-old, who hit the headlines by winning Ladies European Tour Q-School last December.

With rounds of 74-77-71 and 74, she finished at three-over on the par-73 course.
Of the other two Indians in the field, Vani Kapoor made the 36-hole cut, but finished outside the 54-hole cut mark, while Amandeep Drall missed after two rounds at the Australia Ladies PGA event.

Aditi said she was happy and encouraged to make both the cuts at the Victorian Open in her first start as a pro and she thanked David and Melinda Peebles, who hosted her this week.

“I really enjoyed my debut,” said Aditi, who will now play the New Zealand Open in Christchurch next week and that will be her first appearance on the LET, since winning the Q-School.

England’s Georgia Hall won her first professional title when she finished with a par and totalled 11-under.

Hall shot 69, 70, 71 and 71 and won by one shot over Nanna Madsen of Denmark (72-68-73-69) and the defending champion Marianne Skarpnord (73-70-69-70).
