Camille Chevalier wins the Women’s Indian Open

Ladies European Tour rookie Camille Chevalier produced a back-nine birdie blitz to become a first-time winner at the Hero Women’s Indian Open in Gurgaon. The 23-year-old from Aix-en-Provence fired five birdies in her last eight holes on the Gary Player-designed Black Knight Golf Course at DLF Golf and Country Club for a final round of 67, to finish at 12-under-par, a stroke clear of the overnight leader Michele Thomson from Scotland.

“I’m really happy because I’m a rookie and I just won a tournament, so it’s awesome. This is my first win on tour so I’m really happy and I can’t wait to celebrate with my friends,” said Chevalier, who becomes the third successive first year professional to capture the title, following Emily Kristine Pedersen and Aditi Ashok, who both went on to be named Rookie of the Year.


Skarpnord leads at Women’s Indian Open, Vani top Indian

Vani Kapoor showed the way for the Indians with a fine performance on the opening day of the 11th Hero Women’s Indian Open at the Gary Player course at the DLF Golf and Country Club.

The small-built Vani, who nevertheless packs a lot of power, is playing her seventh Women’s Indian Open, but fifth as a pro. She used her course knowledge well to come back from being two-over after five holes to finish with 69. She had six birdies against three bogeys and she was placed Tied-4th with five others.


Aditi Ashok wins Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open

Indian teenager Aditi Ashok earned her third Ladies European Tour title in 12 months after a tense finish to the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open in Abu Dhabi.

The 19-year-old from Bangalore began the final day at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club with a two-stroke lead and seemed to be in cruise control for most of the round. She made a nervy start with a bogey on the fifth hole, but bounced back with six birdies in her next 11 holes to open a four-stroke advantage with three holes to play.

Another unbreakable 18 holes from Lee-Anne Pace keeps the South African atop of the leaderboard at 12 under, as the sun set on Round 2 of the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open.

The second day of the tournament was crammed with action, with India’s Aditi Ashok still in the hunt carding 66 to fall just one shot off the lead on 11 under, whilst Spaniard Luna Sobron made history by setting a new course record with 62; finishing nine under par overall for a share of third place – a 73-place climb from yesterday.

Cristie Kerr drained a 36-foot birdie on 18 to complete an ultra-impressive week in Malaysia with a final-round 71 to win the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia, her 20th career victory over 20 special years on Tour. Kerr made 20 birdies and four bogeys over the final three rounds at TPC Kuala Lumpur for her second win of 2017. She finished with a four-day total of 15-under 269 to win by one stroke over Jacqui Concolino, Danielle Kang and Shanshan Feng.

“It was meant to be,” said Kerr about the putt on 18. “What a way to win. I always said I wanted to get a win in my 40’s and I got it pretty quick.”

Cristie Kerr takes slender lead into final round of Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia

Cristie Kerr has been known to walk in a few putts during her sensational 20-year LPGA career. She confidently followed her 12-foot birdie roll on No. 9 to assume the outright lead on Saturday at TPC Kuala Lumpur.

“I found a feel in my swing yesterday and it has made a big difference,” said Kerr. “I made some big par saves on the back.” 


Shanshan Feng primed for Sime Darby LPGA Title Defense

It’s fair to say that Shanshan Feng likes TPC Kuala Lumpur. In fact, she REALLY likes TPC Kuala Lumpur. The 28-year-old from the People’s Republic of China had nothing big smiles when she remembers her 2014 and 2016 victories at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia. Throw in a pair of runner-up finishes in 2013 and 2015 and Feng has a virtual stranglehold on the tournament’s stunning silver trophy.

“The prize ceremony last year, I was like, “Can I get a membership card here?” Because I play so well here,” said Feng with her trademark loud laugh. “Every time when I lose my confidence, maybe this is where I should come back and play and try to find my confidence back.
