“Wanted Her To Be A Part”: Aditi Ashok To NDTV On Having Her Mom As Caddie

Having finished fourth in women’s individual stroke play golf at the Tokyo Olympics, Aditi Ashok spoke exclusively to NDTV about her remarkable performance and said that despite narrowly missing out on a medal, her 15-under 269 showing would give her a lot confidence going forward. The Indian golfer also expressed happiness at being able to share the Olympic experience with her mother Mash Ashok, who accompanied her to Tokyo as her caddie. “That was great. When I had my dad caddie at the last Olympics, I knew I wanted my mom to be a part of it and get that whole Olympic experience, whether it’s at the village of being there at the competition,” the 23-year-old told NDTV. 

“With COVID, I was pretty sure her being my caddie was the only way I could get her here for sure. I did have her all week and I finished fourth. I was in contention the whole time, so she has had a good week too on the bag and I am happy that I got to share it with her,” Ashok added. 

Talking about her performance this week, she said, “It was a good week, I played well on all four days and I was in the top three in the first three days. 

“I had no expectations coming here but obviously, everyone comes to win a medal. So being in that position the whole time was really good for my game and my confidence. Unfortunately, I did not win a medal but it’s still been a great week.”
