India’s premier golfer Sharmila Nicollet went through the boiling point on a freezing winter day in Spain. It was a day of mixed baggage to the Indian, who just managed well enough to stay tied 11 from being tied second. Even after being ballooned to a seven-over 80, she had just managed to stay in contention for the coveted Ladies European Tour card. On Tuesday at the La Manga Golf Resort's South Course Sharmila suffered four bogeys and two double bogeys and got her only birdie on the 18th. But as of now she seems to be in contention at the end of the third round of the LET Qualifying School Final stage.
Sharmila reckoned that, `it was really tough out there today but there are still two more rounds to go and I hope to make up for this.’ In fact the day was marred even by a few showers.
Accustomed to the climatic conditions in Europe, England’s Jodi Ewart confidently stayed on top of the table with a six under par round of 67 in windy conditions on the South Course. The 24-year-old from North Yorkshire fired six birdies to lead by seven strokes with two rounds to play. (AarKay)
