Vani Kapoor will make her first appearance on the domestic circuit this season when she tees up at the 11th Leg of the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour at the Hyderabad Golf Club on Wednesday. With nice and pleasant weather, the golfers will have ideal conditions, though they may have to contend with the slight breeze that often blows in the city and the forecast of rain.
The 25-year-old Delhi golfer had earlier entered the 10th Leg of the Tour too but had to pull out because of muscle spasms and a neck niggle. She is however fit and raring to go. “I was out due to injury and am playing an event after two months. However, the injury was not serious and I am fine and looking forward to getting back to action,” said Kapoor. “The domestic circuit of the Hero WPGT has become very competitive with good scores and close tussle and I am keen to experience that once again.”
The 11th leg of the Tour carries a purse of Rs.9 lakhs and will feature 24 players including two amateurs, Sneha Singh and Shreya Pal.
