The 2017 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open begins on 16th February live on Dsport. India’s own teenage golfing sensation Aditi Ashok is all set to play in this first LPGA event of the year. It has a crack field of young players, experienced players, and players of differing styles. But there is one thing that all will show.
The battle for the number one spot in women’s golf, which raged fiercely throughout 2016, continues when Lydia Ko and Ariya Jutanugarn pick up arms at Royal Adelaide this week.
Jutanugarn’s 2016 was nothing short of sensational. Starting the season ranked 62 in the world, she finished at number two, in the process taking out five titles and claiming her first major, the RICOH Women’s British Open. She is the first major winner – male or female – from Thailand.
