Previously in 2019, Bajrang had lost the World Championships semi-final to 8-time national champion Niyazbekov.
Today, in round 4 of the Women’s Golf individual Final match at Tokyo Olympics 2020, India golfer Aditi Ashok secured 4th position among 60 players. This indeed is an achievement, India, traditionally isn’t known for golf, however, with the commending performance and efforts of the young and dynamic – Aditi Ashok, India is not standing tall along with nations who topped gold.
Nelly Korda of the United States who played the 2019 Solheim Cup & the LPGA Tour & remained victorious six times, stood first and won the gold medal in the golf tournament with a total of -17, M Inami of Japan secured 2nd place and got Silver with -16. Whereas L. Ko of New Zealand managed 3rd position with -16. Aditi was not far behind with -15.
Aditi was 2nd till yesterday after round 3, but today in the 4th round the inability to make any birdies over the final four holes costed her. In comparison, Inami and Ko each had two birdies and a bogey over that stretch. The one-shot gained proved decisive in Aditi being edged out of the playoff to decide second and third places.
