Aditi Ashok finishes top six at LPGA Texas Classic

KOLKATA: India’s Aditi Ashok shared fourth with Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn, and South Koreans Kim Sei-young and Jenny Shin on 135 at the LPGA Texas Classic on Sunday.

Ashok, seeking her first LPGA title, birdied the par-5 15th on a five-foot putt and closed with three pars. The 20-year-old Olympian from Bangalore, three times a winner on the Ladies European Tour, completed a 66 to grab the early clubhouse lead.

"I'm happy," Aditi said. "I came back one better than I left so that's good."

Storms that wiped out almost all play on Thursday and Friday forced organizers to trim the event to 36 holes, with the final round starting Saturday afternoon.

"Another good finish this week. Thanks to the greens keeping staff for working extra hard through the tough weather and offering a great course to play here," she tweeted.
