Ribeira Sacra Patrimonio de la Humanidad International Ladies Open

This week I’m traveling to Lugo in Spain to play the Ribeira Sacra Patrimonio de la Humanidad International Ladies Open. I had a flight to Porto in Portugal and had to wait a few hours for a bus ride to the hotel. I’m staying at the Augas Santas Balneario & Golf Resort.

The tournament starts on wednesday 29th, so a practise round today and tomorrow I’m playing the pro-am.

The practise round was pretty wet, only 5 minutes of sunshine. Not any improvement on the weather the next few days, so keeping my clubs and myself dry will be a challenge. The course is very narrow and keeping the ball in play with the tee shots is crucial on this course.

I had some fun playing the pro-am today. we played some good golf and finished second at -11. I’m feeling confident for tomorrow. Starting at 10.20 off tee 10.

Day 1:
The weather was ok today, a little bit of sunshine, so I did not have to take out my umbrella. I felt a bit uncomfortable with my swing and left a bunch of putts short on the greens. So I’ll do some speed drills and target practise this afternoon.
All in all, I kept it together and shot level par. Two more rounds to go here in Lugo…I have a tee time at 14:05 tomorrow.

Day 2:
Wow, that was a rough start! A few bad shots on the first few holes which cost me a lot of shots…I refocused and played some better golf afterwards. I shot 73 (+3) and fell back to a tie for 18th place. Let’s move back up that leaderboard tomorrow. First in the course tomorrow at 8.30 off hole 10.

Day 3:
I played a few shots better the last round and shot even par again, finishing in a tie for 12th place. I’m very happy with my result and I’m looking forward to next week. I’ll be playing the LetAcces tournament in Gams, Switserland.
