Sharmila Nicollet Back in the Winner's Circle

She had to wait longer than she wanted (or probably expected), but India's Sharmila Nicollet is a winner again. Sharmila claimed the Hero WPGT 18 tour's second-leg tournament in Mumbai, which concluded on Jan. 25, 2018. And she did it by shooting 68 in the final round, tied for low score of the day.

Nicollet did it despite a late stumble - she bogied her final two holes in regulation. That put her finishing, 54-hole total at 214, tied with Neha Tripathi. But Sharmila then won the playoff to claim the title.

It was the first tournament victory for Nicollet since August 2016 at an event also on the Indian women's circuit. Nicollet also has victories on the Ladies Asian Golf Tour and has played several seasons on the Ladies European Tour.

Sharmila told reporters at the Mumbai tournament that her plans for 2018 include playing the LAGT, the LET, plus several coming events in Australia.
