Mukherjee finished 2nd in the ProTouch Ladies Open in March, and won the 2022 CFL Ladies Open while she finished 5th in the All India Ladies Amateur.

Meanwhile Delhi’s Ragini Navet, joins the University of Southern Mississippi golf team after winning the team qualifying tournament for the South Alabama college tournament where she finished 1st with rounds of 73-74-70-71-71.

Navet has plenty of international experience, including the US Kids European Championship, The European Van Horn Cup, the Kids World Golf Championship in Malaysia, The FCG International, and the IMG Junior World Championship.
