Hyderabad, Nov 23:Jahanvi Bakshi, hoping to make an end-of-the-season dash for the Hero Order of Merit, will be hoping for a repeat winning performance as she takes on the field in the 13th leg of the Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour at the Boulder Hills Golf & Country Club in Hyderabad. Jahanvi, who has now won three times, including last week, is attempting to chase the OOM leader, Amandeep Drall, as the Merit list for a combined two year period will be decided after the two tournaments in Kolkata next month.
The gap between Amandeep (Rs.15,75,250) and Jahanvi (third at Rs.12,02,733) is fair, the latter knows she might need to win at least twice in the last three starts and also hope that Amandeep falters. Lying in second place between Amandeep and Jahanvi is Vani Kapoor (Rs.13,99,050). The Merit list will be for the combined 2020 and 2021 seasons. Amandeep and Jahanvi are the only players to win three times in this period, though Jahanvi’s three wins have all come in 2021.
The Rs.10 lakh event will see Jahanvi paired with Rhea Jha and Anisha Agarwalla in the first round, while Amandeep Drall plays with Ishvari Prasanna and Oviya Reddi.
Also hoping to make a mark are Seher Atwal, who this season managed her first win, and Ridhima Dilawari. They are paired together with Khushi Khanijau in the same group.
Vani Kapoor, also looking for a win to end a long drought, is drawn with Rhea P Saravanan and Jyotsana Singh.
