Tamil Nadu: Vani Kapoor returns to action on the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour after a long gap, as she takes on the field in the tenth leg of the Tour. Vani, who has been playing in the Ladies European Tour and Asian Tour events, won the first leg of the ongoing season.
In Vani’s absence, competition between Tvesa Malik, Neha Tripathi, Gursimar Badwal and Amandeep Drall, who also missed a few domestic events, has been rather interesting and intense.
None of the girls have actually dominated the Tour as such and the honours by and large have been shared. Tvesa is leading the Hero Order of Merit by a slender margin over Neha Tripathi, who has often put herself in the lead but not been able to close the event with a win. Tvesa leads by just over Rs.32,000.
Both Tvesa and Neha have won once each, though Tvesa has also finished second on numerous occasions.
Gursimar Badwal, the only player to have won more than once this season, is lying third on the Order of Merit, while Amandeep Drall is fourth and Smriti Mehra is fifth.
