Mid Season Update
After my successful “winter” in Australia, I returned to Europe and started with the LETAS in Terre Blanche ( Thanks André and Nadine for hosting me over there!), where I made the cut and ended up T31 (75-74).
Next was the Lalla Meyrem cup in Morocco (European Tour). I made the cut again and ended up T30 (71-78-73-72). Up to Gams in Switzerland for the VP bank Ladies open (LETAS). Made it again: T37 (71-72-72). The next tournament was the Jabra Ladies open. A mixed LET/LETAS event on the impressive Evian course. Although Evian is a beautiful course, it is clearly not my cup of tea.
Time for some rest and training before a busy period with tournaments all over the place:
· Finnish Open (LETAS): T14 (75-69-76)
· Czech Ladies Open (LETAS): T34 (71-72-74)
· Ladies European Championship in Thailand (LET): T47 (74-73-72-73)
· Belfius Ladies Open (LETAS): T23 (75-76-73)
· Spain (LETAS): T24 (71-70-70)
Six weeks of traveling in different time zones was starting to get on me. Time for some rest and putting everything back in order.
Anyway, overall I’m pretty happy with my results. Made almost all of the cuts on LET and LETAS and I’m positioned on the 61 th place in the order of merit of the Ladies European Tour. (Top 80 at the end of the year secures my card for next year). A Top 5 position in a LET tournament would help. One of these days …
I’m pretty excited for the upcoming weeks.
Next Monday I’m going to play the final selection for the Ricoh Woman’s British Open. Not an easy job; 120 players (including several world top 100 players) for 12 places. But as I said: “one of these days…) So next tournament will be the British Open!
Immediately thereafter, I play the European Team championships on the famous Gleneagles course in Scotland together with Chloe Leurquin, Christopher Mivis and Lars Buys) It is a new event with the ambition to become the European Olympic Games. Besides golf, the event includes also other sports like Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing, Triathlon and Athletics.
It is a mixed tournament where man and woman can earn the same money (FINALLY !)
Straight from Scotland I fly to Switzerland for the well-organized LETAS tournament in Bossey (just over the border in France) At the end of august there’s another LETAS tournament in Sweden
As you can see, it is going to be busy again
In September I have 2 LET tournaments (Bordeaux and Barcelona) and a LETAS tournament in the UK. I hope that as of October, the Ladies European Tour get some tournaments together, after a difficult year, so that I can secure my position.
Talk to you soon with more information
