Gursimar wins 10th leg of women's Tour

Bengaluru: Golfer Gursimar Badwal overcame a shaky start and kept her nerves to register a second successive win in as many weeks as she won the 10th leg of the Hero women's Tour at the KGA on Friday.

The 25-year-old Kapurthala golfer, who was two-over through the first six holes, completed a final day's card of one-under 71 to finish her 54 holes in three-over 219 and win the title by three shots over amateur Pranavi Urs (70).
Siddhi Kapoor (69) who had the day's best card was third at 224. Gursimar, whose only win prior to this season was last year, won last week at Prestige Golfshire and this week's win at the KGA makes her the third multiple winner on the Hero WPGT 2017.
Gursimar's two titles are the same as Amandeep Drall while Vani Kapoor, who skipped this week, has won three titles.
Overnight leader by one shot Gursimar bogeyed on the second, fourth and sixth holes but also had a birdie in between on the third.
Gursimar did make up with a birdie on eighth and turned in one-over 37. Amateur Pranavi Urs, who was four shots behind overnight came close as she was one-under 35 for the front nine.
