India’s Aditi Ashok finished 41st in her maiden Olympic campaign in the women’s individual golf event which concluded on Saturday.

She carded a five-over 76 in her fourth and final round to end with an overall score of seven-over 291.

The 18-year-old Bengaluru golfer started with a bogey on the first hole before slipping to a double bogey on the third. On the back-nine, she had two bogeys.
At the end of the second round on Thursday, Aditi was in the top-10 with an impressive six-under. However, an eight-over 79 in the third round saw her slip out of medal contention.

The gold was won by South Korean Inbee Park (16-under) while New Zealand’s Lydia Ko (11-under) took the silver.
