Diksha Dagar managed another decent finish with a 2-under 70 card on the last day of the Big Green Egg Open which was held in the Netherlands, for the Ladies European Tour.
The 22-year-old left-hander had finished with rounds of 71-70-70 in a steady show but was not enough to maintain her streak of Top-10 finishes.
Diksha, who had a late bogey, finished 5-under 211 and was Tied-21st. She had two birdies and one bogey on either side of the Hilversumsche Golf Club.
Despite a modest T-21 finish, Diksha stayed in third place in the Race to Costa Del Sol, the Order of Merit for the LET. It has been a great season so far for Diksha who has had one win and six Top-10 finishes with a consistent display on all fronts. She also notched up a career-best finish in a Major at T-21 in the AIG Women’s Open.
As for the other Indians, Vani Kapoor (70) was T-39 at 1-under 215, while the other girls, Amandeep Drall, Tvesa Malik, Ridhima Dilawari and amateur Avani Prashanth had missed the cut.
A thrilling final day saw Thai rookie Trichat Cheenglab landing her maiden LET title as she fired a 67 (-5) to win by one shot. With seven players tied at the top before the final round, it was a close affair.
In the 2023 Race to Costa del Sol, the top three players remained the same with Celine Boutier leading followed by Ana Peláez Trivino in second and Diksha Dagar in third.
Cheenglab moved into fourth on 1,317.72 points and extended her lead at the top of the Rookie of the Year standings.
