Aditi Ashok, Rookie of the year 2016 creates history by teeing up with golfer Sharmila Nicollet, making a comeback, at the LPGA Tour.

This will be first time in Indian Golf history that two Indian girls will be teeing up for ShopRite LPGA Classic to be held this week in New Jersey.No doubt Indian girls Aditi Ashok &  Sharmila Nicollet will be scripting history.

The ShopRite LPGA Classic takes place annually in Galloway, New Jersey and is a prestigious tournament on the LPGA tour.

Aditi Ashok earned her way to the prestigious event by finishing 24th in the qualifying event held in Florida last month, while Sharmila Nicollet won a twitter Pole to win one of the sponsors’ berth .

This unique poll on Twitter was LPGA’s way of promoting women’s golf around the world with the intention of featuring one golfer each from America, Europe, South America and Asia.

Sharmila was representing Asia and topped the poll. Having played a few seasons on the Ladies European Tour (LET) and also an LPGA event years ago, the 25-year-old is now looking to regain her form and make a remarkable comeback through her upcoming performances at both LET and LPGA.

The youngest Indian golfer to qualify for the LET in 2012, Sharmila is the only Indian so far to retain her LET card for two consecutive years.

While Aditi is trying to adapt herself to the American environment as she has played five LPGA events so far, making cuts in four of them.

ShopRite LPGA Classic will offer $ 1.5 million as a prize money .

Surely, the tournament will be historical for India & lots of hopes will be there from young ladies.
