Jabra Ladies Open: Indian golfer Vani misses cut by two shots

New Delhi: Indian woman golfer Vani Kapoor shot a round of 4-over 71, for a total of 7-over 142 after two rounds, to miss the Jabra Ladies Open 2018 cut by a narrow two shots here on Saturday.
The 23-year-old eventually finished at the 67th spot at the tournament, which is being played at the renowned Evian Resort Golf Course in Evian-les-Bains, France.

Fifty six of the 120 players made the cut at the rain-affected tournament, which was taken at five over par.

Finland’s Ursula Wikstrom was leading the field at 6-under going into championship day, looking for a first Ladies European Tour (LET) win.

This year India’s representation at tournament has doubled with Vani making it by virtue of being able to maintain her LET card due to a stellar performance at the Women’s Indian Open earlier in the year.

Sharmilla Nicollette, the other Indian in the fray, is participating through a sponsor’s quota.

The winner of the Ladies Jabra Open gets a direct entry into the Ricoh Women’s British Open.

Two spots are also up for grabs for the Evian Championship, considered the fifth Major of the Women’s Golf season.
