Aditi Ashok turned in one of the most dominating performances on the Ladies European Tour with a nine-shot win at the Magical Kenya Ladies Open on Sunday. Aditi, who will turn 25 next month, also ended a long drought as she last won in Abu Dhabi in November 2017. Her first two titles came in successive starts — at the Hero Women’s Indian Open and then the following week in Qatar Ladies Open.
Aditi, who has her father Ashok on the bag, shot rounds of 67-70-69-74 and totaled 12-under 280 at the Par-73 Vipingo Ridge, where she had finished runners-up in 2019, the year the event was first held.
Her record in the LET is very good as she has won four times in 60 starts and finished in the top 10 as many as 20 times, which means she has a top 10 once in every three tournaments.
With this win, she may well be looking for her maiden LPGA victory, which could make her the first Indian to win on the LPGA, just as she was the first to do on the Ladies European Tour.
The lanky Aditi, who had won professional events at home even while being an amateur, came within a whisker of an Olympic medal at the Tokyo Games.
