Aditi Ashok birdied three of four par-5s, but also dropped three bogeys and a double bogey to finish with a modest one-over 72 in the opening round of Evian Championships, the season’s fifth and final golf Major for women on Friday, PTI reported.
With half the field still on course, she was 48th in the opening round.
The tournament has been reduced to 54 holes after the first day was cancelled because of inclement weather on Thursday.
Aditi, starting from the 10th, bogeyed the 10th, but made up with birdies on 13th and 15th, both par-5s. On her second nine, the front side of the Evian-les-Bains course, she bogeyed first, birdied second and then again bogeyed fourth, but the crusher was the double on par-3 fifth. She softened the blow with a birdie on par-5 ninth but was over par at 72.
