Gursimar starts favourite in fourth leg of Hero WPGT
Pune: Gursimar Badwal will once again start as favourite when the fourth leg of the Hero Women s Pro Golf Tour begins at the Oxford Golf Resort here on Wednesday.
Gursimar, who pulled away on the back nine to win the previous leg here, will once again face stiff competition from Neha Tripathi, Tvesa Malik, Ayesha Kapur and Saaniya Sharma, who comprised the top-5 last week. Gursimar's hallmark has been consistency and that is what carried her through in the third leg. She will now be hoping to strike gold in back-to-back events here, like she did in Bengaluru last year. In the 2017 season, Gursimar won two times and finished in the top-5 on numerous other occasions.
The Kapurthala golfer, who turns 25 on February 26, is looking at another solid season after having finished fourth in the Hero Order of Merit last year. Gursimar holds the lead in this year's Money List with earnings of Rs 2,74,000 while Neha is right behind her at Rs 2,46,000. Tvesa (Rs 2,32,000) and Saaniya Sharma (Rs 2,02,000) are the next in the pecking order.
