Hyderabad amateur Sneha ready for another shot at glory

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

Amateur Sneha Singh will be looking to clinch her second title in succession when she tees off at the 12th Leg of the Hero Women's Pro Golf Tour, starting on Wednesday, here at the Boulder Hills Golf & Country Club.

Winner of the 11th Leg at the Hyderabad Golf Association course, local girl Sneha is also a regular at the Boulder Hills venue.

Another amateur Shreya Pal, who finished a creditable fifth last week, is also back in the field.

Among the leading names from the Pro Tour, Ridhima Dilawari, three time winner this season leads the list, while others include Hero Order of Merit leader Gaurika Bishnoi and No. 2 Neha Tripathi. Amandeep Drall and Gursimar Badwal are the other leading contenders in the field.

Last week Sneha, showing maturity and caliber way beyond her 15 years, beat a strong field including Vani Kapoor, to join a select band of amateurs who have won a pro event.

That select band includes the likes of Aditi Ashok, Diksha Dagar, Tvesa Malik and Ridhima Dilawari.

Pranavi Urs, Gurbani Singh, Raksha Phadke and Mehar Atwal have also won titles on Hero WPG Tour as amateurs.

As the second half of the season rolls on, regulars like Amandeep Drall and Gursimar Badwal, who have often dominated the local tour and won numerous times, have won just once each and would be looking to add to that.

This season six players have won the 11 events held so far, with three of them -- Ridhima (3), Gaurika (2) and Tvesa (2) -- being multiple winners.
