Diksha finishes 7th in Irish Open, rises to 3rd on Order of Merit

Indian golfer Diksha Dagar squandered a promising start to the tournament as she shot a 2-under 70 in the final round to sign off at sole seventh place at the KPMG Women’s Irish Open.

It was the 22-year-old’s sixth Top-10 finish of the year.

In a tournament where the leaderboard was extremely tight, Diksha had a total of 13-under and lost by three shots.

The seventh place finish also pushed Diksha up into the third on the Race to Costa Del Sol, the Order of Merit for the Ladies European Tour. She overtook compatriot Aditi Ashok, who has been dividing her time between the LET and the Ladies PGA in the US. The Top-4 at the end of the season will earn a card into the Ladies PGA Tour.

Diksha, who led the field after the first and second days, had slipped to T-3 after the third round.

Smilla Tarning Soenderby fired the round of her life, a 10-under 62, to post the clubhouse lead and was later joined by Sweden’s Lisa Pettersson and Anne Van Dam of the Netherlands. Soenderby then secured a dramatic playoff victory.

Diksha missed a few short putts and her two bogeys on the 18th, on the third and the final day, proved costly as she came close to victory but could not close it.
