Aditi ready for Women's British Open

Aditi Ashok will play her fourth successive Major of the year when she tees up at the Ricoh Women's British Open at Kingsbarns. The 19-year-old Aditi, who qualified for the LPGA only at the start of the year, played the first three Majors and made the cut in two. But she was still not in for the British Open till two weeks ago.
A Tied-eighth place saw her make the Major as one of the top finishers, who were otherwise not exempt into the British Open. She now has a chance to make up for her missed cut at the Scottish Open last week at Dundonald Links. Ranked 72nd on the Race to CME Globe, the ranking system for LPGA, Aditi looks all set for a full card for 2018 and that would indeed a huge achievement for the young Indian In her rookie year on the Ladies European Tour, she won twice at the Hero Women's Indian Open and the Qatar Ladies Open and was second on the Order of Merit. She was also the top rookie of the year On Thursday Aditi will be in the second group that goes out in the morning at 6.41 am alongside England's Felicity Johnson and American Ally McDonald. Defending champion Ariya Jutanugarn enjoyed the season of a lifetime in 2016, taking her first career major at the Ricoh Women's British Open along with four other victories, all en route to winning the Rolex Player of the Year, Race to the CME Globe and the LPGA Official Money List titles. A year has now passed since Jutanugarn's victory at Woburn Golf & Country Club. While the 21-year-old has a title to her name in 2017 and even rose to World No. 1 for two weeks in June, the seeming ease with which she played in 2016 has not been readily apparent. A nagging shoulder injury, inflamed from a surgery she had in 2013, certainly did not help.
