In her back-nine, she carded birdies on the 14th and 15th while dropping shots on the 10th, 13th, 16th and 17th to finish with a total score of 222 after 54 holes.

Amandeep carded birdies on the second and fifth holes with a bogey on the sixth. She also carded a double on the fourth in her front-nine.

Gurgaon's Gaurika Bishnoi had to be content with the fourth position and a score of 236 after the final round.
