Smriti Mehra bagged her second title of the season after beating Nalini Singh Siwach by four shots to win the fourth leg of Hero-WGAI women’s Pro Tour here on Thursday.
The experienced Smriti shot her second successive two-under 70 to finish with a total of 214, as against Nalini Singh’s 218 following a final round 75.
Saaniya Sharma (73) finished third at 224, Shraddhanjali Singh (71) was fourth at 225, while Vani Kapoor (76) was fifth at 226 and Neha Tripathi (78) was sixth at 227.
Ankita Tiwana (75) and Meghna Bal (77) were tied for seventh at 232.
Nalini, leading by one shot overnight, failed to land any birdies through the round. She bogeyed the third and fourth and fell behind. When Smriti birdied the fifth and the eighth, Nalini was virtually out of the race. Smriti became the first multiple winner this season, having won the second leg in Bangalore before this one. Sharmila Nicollet won the first leg, while rookie Vani took the third. — PTI
