Aditi closed the week with a superb 6-under that had four birdies and a bogey on either side of the turn. It was a particularly satisfying finish after a start that saw her card a 76 on the first day. She made the cut safely with a 72 on the second day and zoomed up the leaderboard with a 66 on the final day.



Charlie Hull (69) held her nerve and kept Marianne Skarpnord (68) at bay to win by a shot and take the first title of the season. Aditi birdied the third, fifth, sixth and ninth on the front-nine and 10th, 11th, 16th and 17th.



She, however, dropped a shot on the 18th but for which she would have been tied-third. Aditi, at 2-under, was tied-eighth alongside Jenny Haglun and Nanna Koertsz and Madsen.

A great fan of Annika Sorenstam, one of the best female golfers in history, Aditi in an earlier interview with, had said it was nice to be recognised by peers in a very male-dominated terrain. “I'm honoured and humbled at the same time to be appreciated. The love showered on me keeps me going,” said she.


The young golfer, who is a tapestry of talent and has catapulted Indian Golf to new heights, hopes to continue to ride the crest of success through her consistent performances.
