Vani Kapoor played a cautious round of 2 over 72 to win the fifth leg of the Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour today.
It is Vani’s third win in five appearances this season. Rookie Amandeep Drall and overnight leader Kiran Matharu finished second and third respectively at the Rs 6,00,000 event which culminated today at the Bombay Presidency Golf Club.
Hero Order of Merit leader Vani had an indifferent start and carded three bogies on the 5th, 6th and 9th holes with a lone birdie on the 8th hole in her front nine.
However the Delhi youngster played with much more control in the latter half, dropping just one shot on the 15th hole while carding a birdie on the 10th hole. She finished with a total score of 211.
Panchkula’s Amandeep continued her impressive run as she took the second spot with a total score of 212. She carded two late birdies on the 16th and 18th holes to jump ahead of Kiran.
She also carded a bogey on the 11th hole with a double bogey on the 7th hole to finish with a score of 1 over 71. Overnight leader Kiran Mathauru had an off day on the park.
She played a birdie-less round of 5 over 75 with bogies on the 3rd, 11th, 12th, 16th and 17th holes. She finished with a total score of 213, two strokes clear of Sharmila Nicollet.
