Aditi finishes T-35th at Thornberry LPGA

Oneida (US), July 9

Aditi Ashok shot her best total of the year but still finished tied-35th at the low-scoring Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic golf tournament. 

The 20-year-old Indian shot a 1-under 71 yesterday for a total of 12-under 276. Aditi had a total of five birdies, two bogeys and a double-bogey in her 71. But her total of 12-under was 19 shots behind Sei Young Kim, whose final round of a 7-under 65 saw her post a record total of a 31-under 257. 

Kim shattered the 72-hole scoring record, which she previously owned along with Annika Sorenstam, who totalled 27-under in 2001. Kim, 25, played the finest four round stretch in the history of the LPGA and shot  63-65-64-65. 

She was streets ahead of the field as she won by nine shots with Carlota Ciganda in second spot at 22-under while Anna Nordqvist, Emma Talley and Amy Yang were tied-3rd at 20-under.

Lahiri ends tied-39th

White Sulphur Springs (USA): On course for a creditable finish at tied-6th, Anirban Lahiri suffered a free fall to end tied-39th in the final round of the Greenbrier Classic. Lahiri carded a 6-over 76 on the rock hard greens of Old White TPC. 

The 67-61-71 on the first three days saw him find 72, 100 and 83 per cent greens in regulation and then it dropped to an abysmal 33 per cent on the final day. 

As for putting, he missed a whole lot on the third and final day when the greens became rock hard and very difficult to putt. 

South Korean-American Kevin Sangwook Na won his first PGA Tour title since 2011. Behind Kelly Kraft (70) in sole second, there were Brandt Snedeker (64) and Jason Kokrak (67) tied-3rd at 13-under. — PTI
