Tvesa to have long shot at Olympic berth at Czech Ladies Open

Tvesa, who has had two Top-10s in her last three starts, will also need some luck in the form of withdrawals from among the qualified players to get into the Top-60.

Tvesa Malik will get one final chance to qualify for Tokyo Olympics at Czech Ladies Open this week.

Indian golfer Tvesa Malik, who has been having a good run on the Ladies European Tour, will get one final chance to qualify for Tokyo Olympics when she tees up at the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open this week.

Nothing less than a win will give her a chance to join Aditi Ashok in the Tokyo Olympics. Aditi is assured of a berth as she is 44th in the current list of qualifiers.

Tvesa, who has had two Top-10s in her last three starts, will also need some luck in the form of withdrawals from among the qualified players to get into the Top-60.

Tvesa, who opened the season with T-23 in South Africa, was T-10 in Italy and then T-6 at Jabra Ladies Open in France. She then missed the cut at Scandinavian Mixed.

Apart from Tvesa, the other Indians in the fray in the tournament are Diksha Dagar and Astha Madan.

The host country is guaranteed a spot, as is each of the five continents. Only Korea and the United States, who have more than four players in the top-15 of the world, are allowed four players.
