Diksha Dagar wins Czech Ladies Open, her second European Tour title
The 22-year-old southpaw Diksha won her first LET title back in 2019 in her rookie year, and in 2021, she was part of the winning team at the Aramco Team Series in London. This was Diksha's 79th start on the LET, and she now has two individual wins and nine Top-10 finishes, four of which have come this season.
Diksha's final round 69 included four birdies and just one bogey in a week. She dropped shots only once each on the first and last days, with a bogey-free 65 in between on the second day. Thailand's Trichat Cheenglab made a valiant charge on the final day with a 64, but her first two rounds of 73-70 meant she started the final day nine shots behind Diksha, and that was too much to overcome for the Thai.
After a series of Top-10 finishes, three of them in the last four starts, Diksha finally forced the door open with a stunning performance that was highlighted by a second round of 7-under 65. She compiled rounds of 69-65-69 with 13 birdies, an eagle, and just two bogeys in 54 holes over three rounds.
Diksha said, "Two years ago, I finished in the top five during the Olympic qualification period. My target was to finish in the top five. I have played here multiple times, and I know this course very well. I'm feeling confident”, after the win.
