Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Aug. 19 (ANI): Aditi Ashok, the lone woman golfer at the ongoing Rio Olympics, produced a spectacular performance as she finished tied at third-place in the round two of the women's individual stroke play here at Olympic Golf Course.

The 18-year-old from Bengaluru, who kept switching between 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, continued her streak of no bogeys for 27 holes before finally disappointing her with two bogey, one of which came in the 18th hole.

Aditi's overall performance included 5 birdies, 2 bogies and 3 pars as she finished the day -6 under par.

USA's Lewis Stacy topped the leader board with 11 birdies and two bogies in her total of -8 under par 63.

Aditi had earlier became the youngest and first Indian to win the Lalla Aicha Tour School and, therefore, secured her Ladies European Tour card for the 2016 season. (ANI)
