GURUGRAM: Aditi Ashok will be one of the top Indian golfers who will be in seen in action in the Hero Women's Indian Open which gets underway at the DLF Golf and Country Club here from Thursday.
The 24-year-old from Bengaluru became the first woman from the country to win on the Ladies European Tour (LET) by clinching the Women's Indian Open in 2016.
She progressed quickly from there, adding two more LET wins in 2016 and 2017 and earning a card on the toughest Tour in the world, the LPGA in the United States.
In 57 starts on the LET, Aditi has had three wins and 18 top-10s. Last year at the Tokyo Olympics, she came agonisingly close to getting onto the podium by finishing fourth.
Aditi, who made her debut in this tournament in 2011, turned in superb performances between 2011 and 2015 in her five appearances as an amateur. She made the cut four times, finished in top-10 once, twice in top-15 and missed the cut only once. In fact, Aditi had won a pro event on the domestic Women's Golf Tour while still being an amateur. She turned pro in 2016 and lifted the silverware that year itself.
