Aditi Ashok. The name we’ve heard today, in the game of golf. Missed the medal by an inch, but got recognition for a sport that isn’t known highly even in the 21st century. Aditi finishes her Olympic journey today. She finishes 4th. What an effort Aditi!! Ippati varaku ye Indian Golfer second place reach kaaledhu. Kaani Aditi ninna jarigina three rounds lo second place lone untu, world’s No.1 golfer tho compete chesindi. All four days the competition went toe-to-toe.
Podhuna leste cricket match lu chuse manam, for the first time Golf chusthu TV ki athukupoyam. Google trends lo top lo unna question ento telusa..? What are the basic golf rules? You know the game carries on for four hours and you have to control emotions, thoughts and breathing for four to four and half hours which very few other sports really require. This is right up there with Abhinav Bindra, Dipa Karmakar and Joydeep Karmakar’s heroic 4th-place finishes at the Games for India.
Aditi Ashok, a 23-year-old Bengaluru girl ranked 200th in the world. She started playing golf at the age of five. Aditi’s first tryst with the 18 holes came as a six year old at the Bangalore Golf Club. She won her first National title at the age of nine. 11,12 years old, Appudu junior tournaments girls tho easy ga gelavadam tho, when she played with the boys that gave her more sense of enjoyment and joy.
Olympics ki mundhu she tested positive for covid-19 and managed to play few tournaments during that period.. Byata gyms and grounds evi lenandhu valla intlo ne daily 20 hours practice chesindi.
Also this is an inspiration to not only youth but also parents over there. Aditi’s caddie at Tokyo Olympics was her mother Maheswari! His father was her caddie at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Parents making a way to fulfill our dreams is what we all want.
In the final round, she fired five birdies on the 5th, 6th, 8th, 13th and 14th holes.
OK.. a small primer in golf for those struggling to understand it.
A golf course has 18 holes. So a "round of golf" is playing those 18 holes. In tournaments, they play 4 rounds of golf so a total of 72 holes.
Each hole has a par score attached to it. 1/n— Arun Krishnan 🇮🇳 (@ArunKrishnan_) August 6, 2021
“It was amazing to feel the support in a Country like India where Golf isn’t popular but people are trying to understand the sport especially women’s golf in India was great”- she said in an interview.
“It doesn’t matter if i’m fourth today, if it helps grow Golf India and in the future if a girl wins a medal for India even if it wasn’t me it’s great”
