Bengaluru, July 19 (IANS) Neha Tripathi will look to add to her tally of two titles when she takes the field in the Hero-KGA Women’s Pro Golf Championship at the Karnataka Golf Association here on Wednesday.
Neha is currently placed second in the Hero Order of Merit with total earnings of Rs.6,16,433 in nine appearances, and she will look at leader Vani Kapoor’s absence due to injury as a huge opportunity to top the money list.
She hasn’t been in the best of form in the recent events, and will be eager to make an early impact at the KGA. The youngster from Kolkata, will however, have to be wary of the likes of Sharmila Nicollet, Amandeep Drall and Gursimar Badwal.
Panchkula’s Amandeep is placed fourth in the Hero Order of Merit with total earnings of Rs.5,13,534 in six appearances, and one title to her name. She has been a consistent performer on the Tour and will look to annex her second win of the year.
Sharmila has struggled to get the ball rolling, and is still searching for her maiden title this season. She would be determined to make amends on her home course and is expected to give the others a run for their money.
Kapurthala golfer Gursimar is placed third in the Hero Order of Merit with total earnings of Rs.5,76,200 in nine appearances, with one win and one runner-up finish to her name. She will be keen to come up with another strong performance and move up the Hero Order of Merit.
Other golfers in the fray are Delhi’s Gauri Monga, Chandigarh’s Saaniya Sharma and Pune’s Shweta Galande. The event will also witness Kolkata’s Siddhi Kapoor making her professional debut on the Tour.
