Neha, Tvesa will look to get going

Neha Tripathi and Tvesa Malik will look to return to peak form as the ninth leg of the Hero Women's Pro Golf Tour begins at the Eagleton golf resort here on Wednesday.

The pair endured a disappointing time in the eighth leg at Clover Greens last month, finding themselves well off the pace.

Neha finished 13 shots behind winner Amandeep Drall in ninth, while Tvesa came home eighth. But the two still lead the rest of the field on the Order of Merit, with Neha's advantage in first place a mere Rs.3600.

Amandeep will be in contention again — she has been in good form, finishing joint second, fourth and first in the last three events. Gursimar Badwal, the only golfer to have won two trophies on the tour this season, also had a rough time in the previous leg, finishing 16 strokes behind the winner. She will seek to bounce back too.

There are four amateurs in the field of 19, including Mysuru's Pranavi Urs.
