Vani Kapoor

Gurugram, Feb 28 (IANS) Having won her first title in her first appearance in the last event, Vani Kapoor will look to adding another title to her tally in the fifth leg of the Hero Women’s Professional Golf Tour being played at the Classic Golf and Country Club here from Wednesday

Delhi’s Vani, who showed a glimpse of her immense talent in the previous event, will start as firm favourite in the fifth leg.

Vani, currently placed ninth in the Hero Order of Merit with total earning of Rs 1,40,000 in one appearance will be up against a very strong field, and will face a stiff challenge from the likes of Amandeep Drall, Gaurika Bishnoi and Smriti Mehra.

Panchkula’s Amandeep Drall, who has posted one win in three appearances with one runners up finish, is currently occupying the first position on the money list with earnings of Rs 3,51,000.

She will be a force to reckon with and will look forward to consolidate her top spot. Gurgaon’s Gaurika Bishnoi, who was not at her best in the last event, will look to better her game and another title to her tally.

She is currently placed second in the Hero Order of Merit with one win and total earnings of Rs 3,39,900 in four appearances.

Kolkata’s Smriti Mehra is sitting fourth in the Hero Order of Merit with total earnings of Rs 3,03,800.

Smriti, who has been consistent but has not been able to convert her performances into wins, would be keen to open her account here.

Other players in the fray are Sharmila Nicollet, Kapurthala’s Gursimar Badwal, Chandigarh’s Saaniya Sharma and Delhi’s Ankita Tiwana.
