The stage is set for the fourth leg of the Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour with 33 players, including six amateurs, teeing off at the par 72 Aamby Valley Green Golf Course on Wednesday.
Vani Kapoor, who is back after a good run in the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, will be watched closely, along with Amandeep Drall, who will soon turn her focus onto the Ladies European Tour.
Vani played three weeks in a row in South Africa. She had Top-20 finishes in each of them. She was 11th at Dimenson Data Ladies Pro-AM, followed by T-17 at SuperSport Ladies Challenge and T-20 at Jabra Ladies Classic.
Those results should give her a lot of confidence.

Amandeep Drall, who is still on the reserves list for the Saudi Ladies International, is however confirmed for the Joburg Ladies and the Women’s South African Open. She is hoping to get some good tournament practice before she ventures outside for the start of her 2022 campaign.
Last week’s winner Hitaashee Bakshi and her sister Jahanvi will be among the front runners, along with Pranavi Urs. Amateur Sneha Singh, who won the second leg, is not playing this week.
