New Delhi: Young golfer Aditi Ashok notched up her second successive top-10 finish by finishing tied sixth at the Volunteers of America LPGA Texas Classic on Sunday.

The tournament, shortened to 36 holes because of rain and bad weather, had Aditi setting the clubhouse target as she played her second and final round in 5-under 66 to finish at 7-under 135.

This was Aditi’s second top-10 in a row after her tied-seventh at LPGA Mediheal last week. Before that her two best finishes this season were T-14 at the Kia Classic and T-19 at the Hugel-JTBC La Open.

Later in the evening, Sung Hyun Park showed why she is one of the stars to watch this season as she went on to win the tournament by coming good in clutch situations.

Aditi, who shot a 69 in the first round also played 14 more holes of her second round on Saturday itself for a total of 32 holes. On Sunday she played her four holes with one birdie and three pars.

Aditi’s 7-under target came over two hours before Park began so she knew exactly what was needed to capture her third career LPGA win. Her first big step was a long chip in from just off the green at fourth for eagle to jump into a share of the lead. The second was her last shot of the day, when she was on 10-under. Park chipped in for birdie from right of the green to finish at 11-under.
