BENGALURU: The Women’s Pro Golf Tour stays on in Bengaluru as Ridhima Dilawari, the only three-time winner this season, hopes to extend her winning run on the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour. While Bengaluru hosts another event, the Tour will feature at a new golf course, the historic Bangalore Golf Club, for the first time ever.
The Delhi golfer Ridhima, who turns 21 in two weeks time, would very much like an early present with two wins in two weeks, as the Hero WPG Tour once again has a Rs.10,00,000 event.
Ridihima will face competition from Gaurika Bishnoi, who was off colour last week, Neha Tripathi and Afshan Fatima, who was runner-up in the previous event at Prestige Golfshire. Amandeep Drall, still looking for her first win this season and Gursimar Badwal will also pose a strong challenge.
With growing competition, the contests have become close and the scores lower with each week, bringing in more and more under par scores. Ridhima will play with two relative newcomers, Anisha Agarwalla and Shriya Vivek, while Gaurika tees up with Oviya Reddi and Suchitra Ramesh.
