In the opening leg of the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour 2023, Seher Atwal had a bogey-free round of 3-under 68 to have a sole lead in the tournament at Poona Club Golf Course.
Seher Atwal had this great win by hitting three birdies where she took a two-shot over the first round which was led by Shagun Narain(71-73). Shagun had two bogeys against no birdies on the front nine, and then had two each of birdies and bogeys on the back nine. Ridhima had three birdies against one double bogey and one bogey.
Atwal survived the stressful final round with birdies on the 4th, 9th and 14th while Shagun Narain had scored 2-over 144. Ridhima Dilawari stood at the third place by having 4-over 146. Then comes Neha Tripathi to come at the fourth place with 6-over 77 with a disastrous triple bogey and a double bogey in the second round. Prior to this Neha was tieing at the second round.
Seher won at the same course in Pune in 2021 when Poona Golf Club hosted a Hero WPGT event for the last time. There has been a consistent growth in Seher’s performance over the years. She is the only Indian golfer to play on the Ladies European Tour through Qualifying School this year, and was second on the Hero Order of Merit in 2022. Alongside this , another player Diksha Dagar became the only Indian to enter in LET’s Top-60 in 2022.
