Exciting fied for Usha Western India Golf

aditiMumbai: Aditi Ashok and Gurbani Singh, the two dominant players on the IGU-Usha Women’s amateur tour will slug it out in the Usha Western India Ladies golf, which tees off this week. They are also first and second in the race for Order of Merit for the season.

Aditi, who is leading the Order of Merit, and has had a hectic season will once again headline the field that includes all the top names in the Usha Western Indian Ladies Championships at the BPGC, Mumbai this week.

Aditi has won two titles in this calendar year at the Delhi Ladies Open and the Army Ladies Open, has however missed out on the honours in the Regional Majors – the Southern, Northern and Eastern Ladies events. She however holds the Usha All India Amateur in Chandigarh, which she will defend in Kolkata in December.

Aditi, who has also been at the forefront of Indian challenge on the  international events, has been performing well, but this year she has been chased hard by Gurbani Singh, winner of Usha Southern India and Usha West Bengal, where she shot a record round of six-under at Tollygunge. With just 20 points (for best 6 results) separating the two in Gurbani will be looking forward to closing that gap further as the seasons enters the closing stages.

There are only two more events left with the Usha Maharashtra Ladies and Usha All India Amateur.

There will be a new champion at Usha Western India, as last year’s champion, Vani Kapoor, has turned professional and has been doing well on the pro circuit. Aditi had finished outside top-3 last year and would therefore be looking at bettering that result.

Other girls, who have performed well have been Amandeep Drall, who won the Usha Eastern India title, and Millie Saroha, the Northern India winner.
