Rookie Siddhi Kapoor carded 1 over 73 in the final round to win the 14th Leg of the Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour at the Delhi Golf Club here on Thursday. In a nail biting finish, Siddhi overcame a strong challenge from Amandeep Drall and Vani Kapoor, who finished second and third respectively, to claim her maiden professional title. The INR 7,00,000 event culminated today.
Kolkata’s Siddhi Kapoor had an indifferent start, carding three quick bogeys on the 1st, 3rd and 4th holes. She dropped three more shots on the 9th, 11thand 16th holes, but birdies on the 6th, 8th and 13th kept her in the hunt. She still needed something special on the final two holes and the 19 year old came good under pressure, carding birdies on the 17th and 18th holes to grab her first professional win. Her best performance before this event was an eighth place finish in the 10th Leg at KGA.
