Bengaluru, Aug 9: Jasmine Sachdev, a Bangalore resident but registered as a US entry, upstaged the favourite Sneha Sharan as she clinched the title in the top category (Girls 15-18 years) by five strokes in the third event of the Southern Leg of the US Kids Local Tour at the Eagleton Golf Resort on Friday. Jasmine submitted the lone sub-par card of the day at 1-under 71 under some tough playing conditions, especially in the back nine as strong winds posed a great challenge.
In two of the interesting battles local lad Ruhaan Bajaj won the battle of nerves as he quelled the challenge of Ishan Shroff of Mumbai in the first play-off hole. The sudden death was necessitated after both the players had scored an identical 6-over 78 after the stipulated round. In a similar result, Ira Gurijala of Hyderabad won over Kriti Parekh of Coonoor after both had finished at 4-over 40 in the Girls 8-9 Years.
