New Delhi, June 3 (IANS) Golfer Vani Kapoor shot a round of 4-over 71, for a total of 7-over 142 after two rounds, to miss the Jabra Ladies Open cut by a narrow two shots.

Fifty-six of the 120 players made the cut at the rain-affected tournament, which was taken at five over par.

Vani eventually finished in 67th spot.

Finland’s Ursula Wikstrom was leading the field at 6-under going into championship day, looking for a first Ladies European Tour (LET) win.

The Jabra Ladies Open, LET’s first “dual ranking” tournament, is being played at the Evian Resort Golf Course in Evian-les-Bains, France.

This year India’s representation at the tournament has doubled, with Vani making it by virtue of being able to maintain her LET card due to a stellar performance at the Hero Women’s Indian Open earlier in the year.

Two spots are also up for grabs for the Evian Championship, considered the fifth Major of the Women’s Golf season.
