Indian golf prodigy Aditti Ashok secured her first ever top 10 finish in the LPGA tour after she came 8th at the Marathon Classic in Ohio earlier today.

A round of three under 68 at the Marathon Classic at Ohio had brought Aditi from sixth position to tied third at the end of Round 3 as she ended the day at 12-under par, one shot off the leader. Aditi, however, take her momentum into the last day as she finished with an even par 71 – missing put on a top-five finish.

At the end of round three, Aditi was T-3 and just one shots off the top. However, she could only manage an even par 71 in the final round saw her miss out on a top five finish. In-Kyung Kim, who was two strokes behind 18-year-old Nelly Korda entering the round, birdied six of the first nine holes and finished with an 8-under 63 for a four-stroke victory


over Lexi Thompson.

Aditi hit birdies on the par-4 third and par-4 ninth holes, but also hit bogeys on the first and the twelfth holes in the final round.

Having made eight cuts in 11 starts, Aditi has been hovering around 25th to 30th places in last few events, and despite slipping up in the final round, it marks a breakthrough for her in her rookie season.

Aditi Ashok came into public limelight during the 2016 Summer Olympics as she came close to winning a medal for her country. In the process of her qualification to the Olympics, she also became the first and only Indian golfer to play in Asian Youth Games (2013), Youth Olympic Games (2014), Asian Games (2014) and Olympic Games (2016).

Having only turned professional in 2016, Aditi can do the double of winning both LPGA and Ladies European Tour while being a rookie in her teenage years.

There are five spots up for grabs for the British Open. And consistent performances from here on would ensure her place in the prestigious major.
