The 22-year-old Diksha Dagar, is aiming for the top spot on the Race to Costa Del Sol, the Ladies European Tour’s Order of Merit race.

The 22-year-old Indian, who won the second title of her career on the LET Tour, is now third, but only a handful of points behind second-placed Ana Pelaez Trivino of Spain. Celine Boutier of France leads the race, and for Diksha to overtake her, she will need a few more good results in the remaining five events, including the home event, Hero Women’s Indian Open.

“I am very confident, and I am playing well,” said Diksha, who takes a break as the LET Tour is focused on the Solheim Cup this week.

In 22 starts this season, Diksha has won once and been in the top six other times. Yet her outstanding performance of the season has also been the T-21 at the AIG Women’s Open, where her result was the best achieved by an Indian woman in a Women’s Major.

The unfortunate part for Diksha has been that she missed out on a spot on the Indian team for the Asian Games. She did not make it to the top 2 in the trials held some months back, after which her performance has been superb.

Yet Diksha is focused on the LET Order of Merit, a possible entry into the LPGA through the final stage of Q-School as the LPGA and LET decided to push back by a year of their plan to give the Top-4 on LET a full card to the LPGA.

Diksha’s focus is also the 2024 Olympics in Paris, for which she seems to be a certainty alongside Aditi Ashok. Diksha will be making her second Olympic performance while Aditi will play her third one.
