Harpal Singh Bedi / Gurugram

Teenager Sifat Sagoo, youngest of the Indian players in the field, emerged as the low amateur after a superb round of 2-under 70 on the final day of the Hero Women’s Indian Open.

The 17-year-old Sifat who finished in Tied-33rd place said that “but for the second day, when I shot 79 and did nothing right, it could have been a great tournament. But I am still happy with the other rounds and especially the final round, where I had three bogeys in a row from sixth to eighth, but fought back with four birdies and no bogeys in last 10 to finish under par at 70.”

She added, “It will go a long way in boosting my confidence. I have some more years in amateur golf and definitely want to play pro golf in the future.”

Sifat, who represented India at the recent Asian Games in Jakarta said, “My father (Harvinder), has been a big inspiration for me and since he is a regular golfer, it was he who got me into the game.”

Sifat recalled her experience of the Asian Games very glowingly. “To represent my country at the Asian Games is a feeling I cannot express in words. It has been one of the high points of my short career. To be able to play against some of the best amateurs in Asia was a great feeling. It was a huge step for me and one that will always be in my memory.”
