Pedersen wins first title
Emily Kristine Pedersen completed a wire-to-wire victory at the Hero Women’s Indian Open to claim her first professional title.
After an opening round of 70, the Dane carded consecutive 73s at the challenging DLF Golf and Country Club to finish on level par for the tournament, one shot clear of Malene Jorgensen, Becky Morgan, and Cheyenne Woods. Liz Young was a further shot back on two-over.
Pedersen showed early nerves on Sunday, three-putting at the first to surrender her lead to Woods who had registered three birdies in her first six holes.
A birdie at the eighth saw Pedersen draw level with Woods, before the pair both notched up birdies at the 11th and bogeys at the 14th. The Dane then went one clear with a birdie at the 15th but gave that shot right back at the 17th.
It was Woods who would falter, though, with a bogey at the last handing Pedersen her first win in her rookie season.
“It’s amazing and I’m so happy. The course has been a big challenge for us. My game has been very good, very steady. I didn’t make any huge mistakes. I kept focused all day,” said the 19-year-old.
“I made a bogey on 17, three-putted and I was kind of getting a flash back and I’m so happy it didn’t happen again and I could win. I was thinking about the play-off after 17 but my caddie Mikey Curry kept me going and focused on my own shots.”
