Rio 2016: Golfer Aditi Ashok slips to tied-31st after round three

Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Aug. 20 : It was a tricky third day for lone Indian woman golfer Aditi Ashok at the Rio Olympics as her overall position slipped to tied-31st in the women's individual stroke play here at Olympic Golf Course.

The 18-year-old from Bengaluru struggled throughout the windy day as she bogeyed three par fours in a row, from holes 11 to 13.

Aditi, who was tied for eighth place after the second round, had also recorded her first double bogey of the Olympics on the 374-yard par-four 15th and the 509-yard par-five 18th.

Aditi's overall performance included just one birdie, seven bogies and 10 pars as she finished the day 8-over 79, to go 2-over 215 overall in the Summer Games.

With her performance, she is now languishing 13 shots behind overnight leader and World No.5 Inbee Park of Korea.

Aditi had earlier became the youngest and first Indian to win the Lalla Aicha Tour School and, therefore, secured her Ladies European Tour card for the 2016 season.
