Tvesa Malik emerges as best Indian in Switzerland with T-11 finish at Swiss Ladies Open

Tvesa Malik emerged as the best Indian golfer in Switzerland after carding 4-under in the final round to finish her Swiss Ladies Open campaign at the tied-11th position.

Malik, who scored an even better six-under in the second round, shot an eagle on the 10th hole with three birdies and two bogeys in her 18-hole play on the final day to end the star-studded event at a creditable place.

She made one eagle, fourteen birdies, five bogeys and one double bogey to end her journey with a total score of 9-under 207.

Atthaya Thitikul of Thailand grabbed the Swiss Ladies Open title after beating Norland’s Marianne Skarpnord by a single shot in a nail-biting final round.

The four-time LET champion Atthaya Thitikul carded 16-under 200 in the 54-hole event to win her 10th professional title.

Aditi Ashok, who was the best-placed Indian at the 28th spot after the first round, shot under-par 69 on Saturday and then a 1-under 71 on Sunday to finish at tied-20th position.

Vani Kapoor finished tied-29th after a spectacular 5-under 67 in the final round, while Gaurika, who was competing in her maiden Ladies European Tour event, finished tied-35th.

The other three, Amandeep Drall, Ridhima Dilawari, and Astha Madan, were eliminated early from the event following a disappointing performance.
