Mehar, Aditi to clash in Usha Southern India golfBengaluru: Defending champion Mehar Atwal will take on Aditi Ashok who is the current leader on the Ladies and junior girls Order of Merit as the Usha Southern India Ladies tees off at the KGA Bengaluru golf course on Tuesday. Aditi won the opening Ladies event, the Usha Delhi Ladies at the NOIDA Golf course in April.
Aditi was in terrific form while winning the opening event in Delhi, but Mehar took some time warming and ended outside top-10. But she is the defending champion here, so she would like to keep the title. But the KGA is also the home course for Aditi, who would like to make amends last year when she finished fifth.

Gauri Monga, who took a long time off from the game to focus on her school leaving examinations is also the fray. She did make a low-key comeback in Delhi Ladies, but she could now be a contender.

The strong field also includes Gurbani Singh and Millie Saroha, who were second and third in Delhi Ladies event. Also in the fray is Gursimar Badwal, who was fourth in the event.

There are more than 60 players in the field and they include Ladies and junior golfers. (IANS)
