Ridhima Dilawari became the first multiple
Ridhima’s win is the second biggest winning margin after Tvesa Malik’s 15-shot victory in the third leg earlier in the season. It was also the first time this year that any player had shot three straight rounds in under-par scores.
Last week’s winner Gaurika Bishnoi added a second successive 73 to reach 216 and finish second to keep up the momentum.
It was the second time in the season that Ridhima had won ahead of Gaurika. This was Ridhima’s second win in three starts.
Gaurika also started with a birdie, but her hopes of challenging Ridhima sank when she dropped shots on second and third. A birdie on sixth saw her turn in level and the gap between her and Ridhima was now six shots.
Neha Tripathi (72), who had an eagle-two on Par-4 seventh hole, was tied eighth with Ananya Datar (76), while Afshan Fatima (76) and yet another amateur Nayanika Sanga (77) were tied for 10th place.
Neha Tripathi leads on the Hero Order of Merit with earnings of Rs.5,03,800 and is followed by Gaurika Bishnoi with Rs.4,72,800.
