India’s Aditi Ashok missed a medal narrowly as she signed off 4th in the Olympic Games’ golf competition after carding a three-under 68 in the weather-hit final round here on Saturday. The 23-year-old from bangalore ended two strokes off the pace with a total of 15-under 269.
It was a heartbreaking end to Aditi’s campaign considering she started the day at 2nd. But it was nonetheless a major improvement as she had finished tied 41st in the 2016 edition where golf made a comeback to the Olympics.
In the final round, she fired five birdies — on the 5th, 6th, 8th, 13th and 14th holes, against two bogeys on the 9th and 11th.
Overnight leader and world number one Nelly Korda secured the gold medal with a 2-under 69 that left her 17-under overall and a shot ahead of Japan’s Mone Inami (65) and New Zealand’s Lydia Ko (65).
