India’s Aditi Ashok maintained her solid form as she put in another confident display with 2-under 71 at the Par-73 Royal Golf Dar Es Salam and stayed in contention for a second title in as many weeks.


With the round of 71, she moved to 6-under after two rounds of the Lalla Meryem Cup on the Ladies European Tour.


Aditi, who won the Magical Kenya Ladies Open last week by nine shots, shot a 4-under round on the first day. She is now two shots behind Maja Stark, who carded a second round 6-under 67 to move to 8-under.

While Aditi confidently moved into the final round, India’s other star, Diksha Dagar missed the cut after rounds of 81-77.

Aditi, 24, had four birdies against two bogeys on day two and is aiming for two wins in a row. “I am a confident player. When you win a tournament you feel like your game is there and even though I didn’t have any practice rounds, I do feel like my game is pretty good this week and I will just continue to play my game,” Aditi said.
“It’s nice to be up there after a couple of days, but I think this field is pretty strong so I’m sure it’s not going to be easy,” Aditi added. 

Aditi was playing in the company of defending champion Nuria Iturrioz, who won the event when it was last held in 2019.
