HEDWALL RULES IN INDIA
Caroline Hedwall notched the fourth win of
her rookie season on the Ladies European Tour
with a closing 69 at the Hero Women’s Indian
Open on Sunday.
The 22-year-old Swede had five birdies and
two bogeys in her final round at DLF Golf and
Country Club in Gurgaon, New Delhi, to finish
with a 12-under 204 total, two ahead of Thailand’s Pornanong Phatlum.
The victory means Hedwall can overhaul
second-place Melissa Reid on the Henderson
Money List in the season-ending event in Dubai,
but she cannot catch top-ranked Ai Miyazato.
Pornanong, a two-time winner of the Indian
Open before it became sanctioned by the LET
in 2010, carded a 70 to end at 10 under, while
Becky Morgan from Wales had a 69 to finish
third at 8 under. Swede Linda Wessberg signed
for a 73 to tie for fourth with Lee-Anne Pace
(68) on 4-under par.
BRADLEY, STEELE CAPTURE SHOOTOUT
PGA Champion Keegan Bradley and Brendan Steele shot a 13-under 59 in scramble play

eagle by Steele on No. 14 and a birdie on No.
