A Quick Peek at the LET Event

I don't write as much about the LET, simply because they don't get much (if any) airtime here in the US. And because of that, I'm not as familiar with the players.

But when I checked this week's leaderboard for the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open in Abu Dhabi, it caught my attention immediately. Why? Because I recognized the names of most of the players in contention!

Third round leader Aditi Ashok

By the time most of you read this, the event may be over. But as I write this, the ladies are barely starting their final rounds.

Leading the event is Aditi Ashok (-15), the teenager from India who came to most fan's attention at the Rio Olympics, is chasing her third LET title. She is two shots ahead of Cheyenne Woods, who is after her second LET title, and three shots clear of Ellie Givens (in their threesome) and Lee-Anne Pace. Camilla Lennarth and Georgia Hall are at -11.

I admit to a certain fascination with Aditi. The trailblazers in women's golf generally attract my attention, and Aditi's success at such an early age when she hasn't had the advantages of the other female golfers around the world amazes me even more than the greater successes enjoyed by players like Lydia Ko and Brooke Henderson.

Although there have been some low scores this week -- Luna Sobron posted a second-round 62 and Ellie Givens a third-found 64 -- the heat seems to be taking its toll, as most of the scores are 68 or less. With the relatively tight grouping at the top of the leaderboard, those of you who can watch the event may get to see a strong finish.

Aditi might even pick up her third LET title. Teens seem to be playing some pretty good golf lately. ;-)
