*Sneha (L), Vani Kapoor (R)
Gurugram, 15 March: Sneha Singh, winner in two of her last three starts, will make another attempt at her third title of the season in the sixth leg of the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour starting at the Classic Golf & Country Club here from Wednesday.
While Sneha did achieve multiple wins as an amateur, after turning professional she came close several times before finally winning the third leg and again the fifth leg last week. She is now getting into the stride to do that repeatedly.
However, Sneha will have to contend with the country's top stars who are all here playing after coming back from their international engagements.
Amandeep Drall, runner-up at the 2022 Hero Women’s Indian Open, Vani Kapoor, who had a good Top-15 finish at the Women’s South African Open last week, and Tvesa Malik, a LET regular is all among those in the draw.
The field also has Gaurika Bishnoi, who was runner-up last week in the fifth leg, Seher Atwal, who has one win this year, and Hitaashee Bakshi, a multiple winner in the past who is coming back from an injury.
Other experienced hands include Neha Tripathi, Saaniya Sharma and Gursimar Badwal, who makes a return after a long gap due to injury.
Two amateurs interesting to watch will be the talented Nishna Patel, who last week made the cut and finished Tied-35th at the Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific in Singapore and Lavanya Jadon, who made her international debut at the same event. Anvvi Dahhiya, Rishika Muralidhar, Keerthana Rajeev and Nandita Kumar are the other amateurs playing this week.
There are 38 players including six amateurs in the Rs.12 lakh event.
Sneha Singh leads the Hero Order of Merit and has two wins from the five events she has played in, with Seher Atwal second and Jasmine Shekar third.
