Tvesa Malik completed a fine start-to-finish victory despite dropping a double bogey and a bogey in the last three holes of the Usha Delhi Golf Club Ladies Open here Friday.

The win also brought Tvesa her maiden title this season and will be a big boost for the young golfer.

With her closest contender Millie Saroha struggling to a 83, Tvesa managed to keep her nose ahead even as Amandeep Drall and Gauri Monga turned in 74 each on the final day. Tvesa totalled 227 while Amandeep was two shots behind and Gauri Monga one further down.

Milkha Singh, the Flying Sikh, who is known to play a round of golf every day despite being past 80 years of age, and Sidharth Shriram, Usha's co-chairman and former PGA President, gave away the prizes at the closing ceremony at the Delhi Golf Club.

Ghazala Yassmin topped the Category A and B for handicap 24 and below. Arshia Mahant was first in Usha Junior (A and B) with handicap 24 and below.
