Indian Golfer Diksha Dagar Wins South African Women’s Open


Diksha Dagar became the second Indian to win an event on Ladies European Tour after clinching South African Women’s Open in Cape Town. Dagar had finished tied-fifth at the NSW Open last week.
Dagar was two shots behind overnight leader Lee-Anee Pace, a three-time former champion, at the beginning of the day but she carded a score of three-under 69 for an aggregate score of five-under 211 to win the tournament.

“I just played my normal game I didn’t not expect to win this tournament, and I got two lucky breaks, on the 15th and 16th, where I made a long putt and one chip in,” Diksha said after the win. “My aim was to get close to the hole and make it to the par. I was confident, sometimes you have a feeling that ‘yes, I can do it’ and it happened,” she said. Aditi Ashok was the first Indian to win on the Ladies European Tour .

The 18 year old Diksha has hearing problems and her father Narinder Dagar, helped her . The left-handed Dagar is well-known for her brand of aggressive and fearless golf on the Indian circuit.
