By the time Jahanvi Bakshi got home from the competition arena, the euphoria of winning again on her home course, DLF Golf & Country Club, in less than six months on the Women’s Golf Association of India was put into perspective.
Choosing her words carefully, Jahanvi spoke like a seasoned campaigner. Far from denying the pressure of competing in the leadgroup on the final day, Jahanvi said in fact it spurred her on and how critical it was to play the last six holes without losing focus and sight of the leaderboard.
From March, when she broke through on Tour, the conditions weren’t very different this time despite the torrential rain, and Jahanvi always had powerful memories driving her campaign at this tough competition venue.
As a sibling, Jahanvi would have liked to compete with Hitaashee, but the younger sibling did not have a good week. The causes are being analysed, and the disappointment will be used to get better. “She is a player, will get over it,” said Jahanvi.
