Aditi Ashok in action

Aditi finishes T-10 in Sweden, Vani is T-38th

Fiskebackskil, Sweden, Aug 30:Aditi Ashok played a bogey free final round of 2-under 69, but would have been somewhat disappointed at not being able to convert more birdies at the Didriksons Skafto Open in Sweden.

The 23-year-old three-time LET winner, Aditi finished at 4-under 203 at the par-69 course and finished a creditable T-10. She shot rounds of 72-64-67 and this was only her fourth start on the Ladies European Tour this season, of which two were Majors, and the result in Sweden was her first Top-10 of the year apart from the Olympic Games, where she was fourth.

Aditi continues to play on the LET in the coming week at the Creekhouse Open and the VP Bank Swiss Ladies Open before travelling to the LPGA for the remainder of the season. She will later return to the LET towards the end of the year.

Vani Kapoor finished T-38 with rounds of 71-69-73. It was her best LET result this year. She missed cuts in two earlier starts. After a long break in 2020 due to the pandemic, Vani seems to be finding her feet, as she also made three cuts in August on the LET Access Series, the second rung Tour, where her best was T-16. This week Amandeep Drall and Astha Madan missed the cut.

Frenchwoman Pauline Roussin Bouchard took the title on a fiercely contested final day with Magdalena Simmermacher on the Swedish West coast. Despite having a four-shot lead heading into Sunday, things were anything but straightforward for the Frenchwoman, with the Argentine pushing her all the way until the final hole in Sweden, as she secured a one-shot victory with a final score of 11-under.

Roussin Bouchard claims the victory in just her second professional event, having turned pro only a fortnight ago.

Simmermacher finished tied for second spot with the impressive Linn Grant, who shot 62 (-7) on the final day to rocket up the rankings, and give her a top three finish in her first professional event.
