Aditi Ashok made a disappointing start at the Evian Championship as she finished the opening round ten shots off the lead in France.
Aditi, who ended tied for third place in the LPGA's last week event, couldn't keep up her rhythm and shot a stressful 4-over 75 at the Evian Resort Golf Club.
The only Indian playing in the event, Aditi was at even-par through nine holes, but then she made two bogeys and one double bogey to end her day at a painful 4-over.
The 23-year-old, who made eight cuts in eleven events this season, now needed a solid second to keep herself alive for the weekend action.
