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.”
