Aditi Ashok of India nearly missed out on a medal in the Olympic Games' golf competition, finishing fourth after a three-under 68 in the weather-affected final round on Saturday, August 7, 2021. Aditi's campaign came to a devastating conclusion after she started the day in second place but finished fourth. She made five birdies in the final round, on the 5th, 6th, 8th, 13th, and 14th holes, compared to two bogeys on the 9th and 11th. For the majority of the day, Aditi was in contention for a medal, but two bogeys pushed her back, while Ko stormed ahead with nine birdies and only three missed shots in her final round. Nelly Korda, the overnight leader and world number one, won the gold medal with a 2-under 69, putting her at 17-under total and a shot clear of Japan's Mone Inami (65) and Lydia Ko of New Zealand (65). To determine the silver and bronze medalists, Inami and Ko will compete in a play-off.
