Indian golfer Aditi Ashok carded a 4-under 203 to finish tied-10th on the Ladies European Tour’s (LET) Skafto Open at the Skafto Golf Club in Fiskebacksil, Sweden on Sunday.

Aditi Ashok was tied for 10th place, dropping three places overnight, alongside Lydia Hall of Wales, Australia’s Stephanie Kyriacou and Dane Nicole Broch Estrup.

Fellow Indian Vani Kapoor ended in tied-38th place, carding 6-over. India’s Amandeep Drall and Astha Madan failed to make the cut for the final round.

The Skafto Open only had three rounds of play. Aditi Ashok began with a 3-over 72 in the opening round before gaining back some ground with a 5-under 64 in the second, thus making the cut for the final round.

Aditi Ashok managed a bogey-free 2-under 67 in the third and final round.

The 23-year-old Aditi Ashok - the world No. 160 - had made waves at the Tokyo Olympics, where she was in medal contention before eventually finishing fourth. Aditi competed at the Women’s British Open next where she finished tied-61.

Frenchwoman Pauline Roussin Bouchard won the Skafto Open with an overall 11-under, one shot ahead of Linn Grant of Sweden and Magdalena Simmermacher of Argentina, who both tied for second.

It was only Pauline Bouchard’s second professional tournament, having turned pro a fortnight ago.
