Aditi carded -3 under par 69 to win the Qatar Ladies Open title with a -15 under par total, and a three shot victory. The 18-year-old now looks set for a glittering career in ladies golf;

“It’s been a great few weeks. I won my home event in the Indian Open, which was my first win. To win back to back events feels really good.”

The first win was special, because I won in India, but I felt I played really well here and had to play well every day and shoot sub-par rounds.”

“I think my game was better this week and obviously to win in the Qatar, the golf course is the same as the men’s, so I know it’s challenging and to win here feels good.”

“It was really difficult at the start because of the rain. Then we stopped for more than an hour and a half and when we got back it was really windy, so that was difficult, but I guess it was the same for everybody. I was trying to hit greens and make pars.”

I think I was playing well through the front nine and got a couple of birdies on seven and eight. After that, I created quite a few chances on the par-5 ninth and tenth.”

“Then, I was short on 14. I did create enough birdie chances but I wasn’t making any.”

“Finally I was able to birdie 16. My goal was to be error free and I made a bogey on 17 but I played consistently well for the most part and made a birdie on 18.”

Caroline Hedwall and Lydia Hall tied for second place at -12 under par, those three shots back of the winner.
