GURGAON, Sept 14 (PTI): Gaurika Bishnoi completed a massive six-shot win despite scoring a three-over 75 in the final round of the 14th leg of Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour here on Friday.
The 20-year-old Rohtak golfer, who was searching for her first win this season, shot 3-over 75 which included three birdies, two bogeys and two doubles.
Gaurika totalled 226 and finished six shots clear of Tvesa Malik, who finally found her rhythm on the final day with a card of one-under 71, only the second sub-par round this week.
While this served her well to get to sole second, she was too far behind to challenge Gaurika.
Amandeep Drall, whose 80-80 in the first two rounds put her way down on the leaderboard, could have challenged Gaurika but a bogey start, a bogey on the Par-5 15th and a triple bogey on the closing 18th saw her finish the final day at 73.
Thereafter the pendulum swung Gaurika’s way as she stabilized with three birdies and two bogeys, while Khushi dropped three bogeys and four doubles and fell to seventh.
Tvesa had the best day with birdies on ninth, 12th and 18th and dropped shots on seventh and 15th. Amandeep’s triple robbed her of the chance of getting to second place and closing the gap with Tvesa on the Hero Order of Merit.
At the end of the 14th leg of the Tour, Tvesa continued to lead the money ranking with Rs.12,82,400 while Amandeep Drall was second at Rs.10,38,200 and became the second player to cross the Rs.10 lakh mark this season.
