Indian golfer Diksha Dagar, despite a promising start to the tournament, fell short in the final round, carding a 2-under 70 to finish in seventh place at the KPMG Women's Irish Open. This marked her sixth Top-10 finish of the year, ending with a total score of 13-under, trailing the leader by three shots.
Diksha's performance also boosted her to the third position on the Race to Costa Del Sol, which is the Order of Merit for the Ladies European Tour. This achievement surpassed her compatriot Aditi Ashok, who splits her time between the LET and the Ladies PGA in the US. The top four players at the end of the season will secure a card for the Ladies PGA Tour.
Diksha had initially led the field after the first and second days but slipped to T-3 after the third round. Her performance in the final round was marred by missed putts and two crucial bogeys on the 18th hole.
Among other Indian golfers, Tvesa Malik had a solid showing with rounds of 69 and 70, finishing T-36 overall, making her the second-best Indian performer in the tournament. Vani Kapoor finished T-54 with a round of 71, while Ridhima Dilawari ended in 69th place with a score of 80. Amandeep Drall did not make the cut.
Diksha began the final day just three shots behind the leader. She had a decent start with birdies on the second and sixth holes but faced setbacks with a bogey on the eighth. Her round featured an up-and-down performance with birdies on the 11th and 17th holes but a bogey on the 12th. Despite her efforts, she missed a critical birdie opportunity on the Par-5 16th hole. On the 18th, she needed an eagle to force a playoff but found water and missed a crucial par putt.
