Bengaluru, July 22 (IANS) Promising golfer Amandeep Drall carded one under 71 on the final day to grab a comfortable victory in the KGA women's Pro championship at the Karnataka Golf Association here on Friday.

Kolkata talent Neha Tripathi came second with a total score of 224 whereas Kapurthala's Gursimar Badwal finished third with 225.

Amandeep had a shaky start and carded a bogey on the very first hole. The professional from Panchkula, however, regained her composure immediately and carded consecutive birdies on the second and third holes. She dropped another shot on the seventh hole in her front nine.

On her return journey, she carded two more birdies on the 11th and 15th holes, while dropping a shot on the 18th hole to finish the round with a total score of 213.

In the process, she claimed her second title of the season with a comfortable margin of eleven shots.

Neha too carded one under 71 on the day to take the second position. She started with aplomb, firing three consecutive birdies on the fifth, sixth and seventh holes, while dropping a single shot on the 8th in her front nine.

She carded two more bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes along with a double on the 10th in the latter half. However, an eagle on the 11th with a birdie on the 14th helped her to retrieve the situation, and finish the round with a total score of 224, one shot clear of Gursimar Badwal.

Gursimar had an indifferent day in the park and carded five bogeys on the seventh, ninth, 15th, 16th and 17th holes. However, two birdies on the 14th and 18th helped her to control the damage and she finished the round with a score of 3 over 75.

Local golfers Sharmila Nicollet and Trisha Sunil finished fourth and fifth with scores of 227 and 228 respectively after the final round.

The Tour now moves to Prestige Golfshire for the 11th Leg to be played from Tuesday.
