Press Trust of India Rabat (Morocco)
Diksha Dagar rounded off her week with an even par 73 for a total of even par 292 to end in Tied-17th place on Sunday here at the Lalla Meryem Cup.
The 19-year-old Dagar, who won the Women's South African Open last month for her maiden win, was in the Top-3 for the first two rounds.
However, she slipped to T-17, which is still a creditable finish, considering this was only her sixth start as a professional and she has made the cut in five of them. She has won once and finished fifth on another occasion.
Dagar shot 69, 75, 75, 73 and was the best of the three Indians who made the cut.
Starting on the 10th, she had two birdies and two bogeys in her card.
Tvesa Malik, starting from the back nine, was four-under at one stage, but ultimately finished three-under 70, her best for the week.
She finished T-41 with a total of seven-over 299.
Astha Madan dropped a bunch of shots with two bogeys and a double between 15th and 18th for a finishing 77 and a total of nine-over 301 for T-50th.
Spain's Nuria Iturrios shot her four successive sub-par round to emerge a runaway winner at 13-under 279. She shot 68, 71, 70 and 70. She won by a whopping seven shots over Caroline Hedwall (70) and Lina Bonqvist (77), who were tied second at six-under 286.
Four players were tied for fourth.
