Rayhan and the other 2 from our Asian Games team are now participating in the World Amateur Team Championships.

Rayhan actually led after round 1 but like at the AG, his scores fell off in round 2.

Spectacular showing form Megha. Hope she keeps up this good form and makes a lot of noise after making her first cut on the LPGA tour.

US Women's Open

Final scores:

T14 Megha Ganne (A) +3
66 Gurleen Kaur (A) +21

Both Megha & Gurleen had a disappointing Final round.

Nevertheless, Megha performed well in a big event.

Making the cut as amateurs in a major is an achievement in itself. Megha did a lot better finishing T14. So we have two talented girls of India origin to look forward to in the future.

Commendable performance especially by Megha in a Major.
However, the way she played the first 3 rounds, had hoped for a Top 5 or 10 finish.
Hope she turns pro and gets many invites to LPGA events after this.
:goodluck:

I think she is a Stanford commit.

US collegiate golf is very strong, so she should continue to grow as a golfer in college although as you stated she is probably good enough to compete on the LPGA tour right now.

What is Ms. Ganne up to now a days? Haven’t heard anything since that breakout tournament for her.
