IANS  |  Lucknow 

Indian golfer Smriti Mehra played an inspired round of four under 66 on the final day to clinch her maiden Hero womens Professional Golf Tour title at the Palms Golf Club and Resort here on Saturday.

Delhi's golfer Vani Kapoor finished runner-up with a score of one over 71, followed by Gursimar Badwal in third place.

Kolkata's Smriti started impressively, carding a bogey-free front nine with birdies on the first, third and eighth holes.

In her back nine, she dropped a shot on the 10th hole and carded a double on the 15th. She quickly regained her composure and carded an eagle on the 16th hole followed by birdies on the 17th and 18th to claim her maiden title of the current season with a total score of 208 after 54 holes.

Vani also had a good start, carding a bogey free front nine with birdies on the second and eighth holes. However, she could not sustain the momentum in her back nine and carded bogeys on the 11th,12th and 14th with a double on the 15th.

Birdies on the 13th and 18th holes helped her to salvage the situation and she finished the day at one over 71.

She took the second position with a total score of 214, one shot clear of Gursimar Badwal.

Kapurthala's Gursimar finished with an even par round on the final day with a total score of 215 to finish in third position.

Her round was a mixed bag, with birdies on the seventh, eighth and 16th holes, and bogeys on the third, sixth and 15th.
