Camille Chevalier edges past Michele Thomson to win Hero Women’s Indian Open

Golf


Scotland’s Michele Thomson had to settle for second place at the Hero Women’s Indian Open after Camille Chevalier of France got the better of her on the final hole in Gurgaon Sunday.

Thomson led by three shots overnight having posted a course record 8-under-par 64 at DLG Golf & Country Club’s Black Knight Course Saturday, with Chevalier among four players in joint-second.

And Thomson was then five shots clear in first place — six ahead of Chevalier — after eight holes in her final round.

But contrasting fortunes for the pair on the back nine saw Thomson register back-to-back bogeys on the 10th and 11th and a double-bogey on the 14th while Chevalier kept producing birdies.

And after they went into the 18th tied at the top on 11-under, a second successive birdie from Chevalier (67) — her fifth in eight holes — saw her seal victory by one shot over Thomson (71) for her first Ladies European Tour title.
