The Kenya Open 2023 was a historic event in the world of golf, as Indian golfer Aditi Ashok secured her fourth Ladies European Tour (LET) title, ending a five-year drought at Vipingo Ridge, Kenya on Sunday. Aditi's victory at the Kenya Open was the result of years of hard work and dedication, starting from her early years as a junior golfer.
Meanwhile, 24-year-old Aditi produced her best performance to win by nine shots on the Women's European Tour. She did this brilliantly at the Magical Kenya Open 2023. This was Aditi's fourth win on the Ladies European Tour (LET). The Indian golfer, who turns 25 next month, also ended a long winning drought. Earlier, she had won in Abu Dhabi in November 2017. Apart from this, she has won Hero Women's Indian Open and Qatar Women's Open. She shot 12-under 280. Earlier, she was the runner-up in this event in Kenya in 2019. Aditi manages to do well in the European tour. She has been in the top ten 20 times, which means she has reached the top ten players in every third tournament.
Aditi's journey in golf began at a young age, as she won several junior golf championships in India. Her success at the junior level caught the attention of the Indian National Team, and she was selected to represent India in international tournaments. This early recognition set the stage for Aditi's rise to the top of the golf world.
Moreover, in 2016, Aditi became the first Indian woman to win the Ladies European Tour Qualifying School. After that, she earned her full membership to the Ladies European Tour for the 2016 season. In her rookie year, Aditi made a strong impression, finishing in the top 10 in several events and earning a victory at the Hero Women's Indian Open.
The Kenya Open 2023 marked a turning point in Aditi's career, as she ended her five-year drought by securing her fourth LET title. Aditi's victory at the Kenya Open was a testament to her hard work and determination. She battled against a strong field of golfers to secure the win.
