Impressive finish by Aditi in LPGA
Aditi Ashok completed yet another impressive finish with a final round of three-under 69 to be tied 28th at the inaugural Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. The 19-year-old Indian rookie ended at 11-under 277, her third straight finish between 25th and 30th places. Aditi played out rounds of 70-68-70-69. She has now made eight cuts in 10 starts, including two Majors, and is all set for the US Open next.

Kirk birdied the 72nd hole to finish at 22-under par, the lowest four-round tournament total in her career. Kirk had an up-and-down Sunday with four bogeys offset by six birdies, and was able to hold off all challengers including Sei Young Kim and Pornanong Phatlum.
