Kiran Matharu of England is currently playing at the Lalla Aicha Final, Marrakech in Morocco and is playing well above her expectations. She is a two times champion on the Hero Women’s Pro Tour India and boasts several top 10 finishes on the Ladies European Access Tour. UniMedia was also fortunate to have Kiran play at the inaugural PinkStig Invitational 2016, which took place at Sun City. She completed her round on even par and ended T8 with Mae Cornforth of South Africa.
Kiran Matharu is also joined with the only African (South African) player representative Lejan Lewthwaite currently +4 and South African born Francesca Cuturi currently +5 and who now plays under the Italian flag.
UniMedia caught up with Kiran to get a sense of her performance after three days at the Lalla Aicha Final Stage.
Kiran’s response to UniMedia: “So going into the Lalla Aicha Final Stage I worked with my coach Mark Pinkett and my trainer Ghulam Rafique on the basics, as I have been on decent form I didn’t change too much. We are playing two different courses this week so I only played 18 holes on each as I have played them before. Practice went well, all I wanted to do was get a feel for the greens really.”

She continues: “My approach for the three days so far has been to play aggressive as I know the scoring will be low. My scores have progressively got better over the three days, which I’m happy with. The courses here are quite open and there are a lot of birdie chances, the greens are fast especially on the main course Samanah. I generally prefer fast greens so that’s suits me well. My strategy for round four is just the same, play aggressive.”
