Diksha Dagar and Tvesa Malik playing golf

Determined Diksha and in-form Tvesa ready for the Swiss Challenge

Holzhausern, Switzerland, Sept 9: Diksha Dagar is determined to change her fortunes around this week as she tees up at the VP Bank Swiss Ladies Open at Golfpark Holzhäusern this week. Diksha, winner of the 2019 South African Women’s Open, has had modest results in the past few weeks since she came over to European for the Ladies European Tour.

Giving Diksha company will be Tvesa, who has been trending well in her first full season in Europe.

Southpaw Diksha missed the cut at the Scottish Open and the AIG Women’s Open and when she made the cuts at Czech Ladies Open and Flumserberg Ladies Open on LET Access Series, she was T-67 and T-47, which was way below her expectations.

Diksha said, “The last few weeks have made my resolve even stronger. I will come back soon.”

She also tweeted, “Tough times with results, making me and my resolve even stronger, Devils within and outside my Head be aware I'll keep coming back again and again and again stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger.”

Keen to play in as many tournaments as she can, Tvesa, said, “I have had enough rest at home for more than four months. I will play at every tournament I can get in.”

Her results have also been encouraging. She made the cut at the Scottish Open but finished 65th. She missed the cut at the AIG Women’s Open narrowly, but was T-20 at Czech Ladies Open and then T-4 at the Flumserberg Ladies Open in Switzerland on the LET Access Series.

The field this week includes Austria’s Christine Wolf with whom Tvesa is familiar. Last year Wolf won the Hero Women’s Indian Open, as Tvesa was Tied-sixth for her best result to-date on the LET. Christine Wolf was also second at the LET’s most recent stop in the Czech Republic.

Rising to ninth in the Race to Costa Del Sol, the one-time LET winner is teeing it up in her 99th LET career-tournament and is benefiting from the luxury of staying with good friend and homegrown talent Caroline Rominger, who lives close to Golfpark Holzhäusern.

“Caroline has given me plenty of advice on the course which has been so helpful, and I am playing nine holes with her today for some more. She said that the course is even better than last year and they have let the rough grow and made the greens a bit faster to make the course a bit more of a test, which is exciting,” said Wold, who eyes her second LET victory, following last year’s Hero Women’s Indian Open.
