My season is over and I can look back on a successful year.
At the Santander/LETAS tournament in El Prat Barcelona I finished 9th, where I also finished in the top 5of the LetAccess. My last tournament of the year on the Ladies European Tour was the Spanish Open where I finished 22nd with scores of 73;74;73;66. (Best round of the day!).
The tournament was played at the very beautiful La Quinta Golf in Benahavis. The weather conditions were horrible. We couldn’t play practice rounds and as expected we were not able to finish the first round. It wasn’t look good, and we weren’t sure if we could play 4 rounds. As a result, I just made the cut and had to play the last two days 26 holes each day to finish the tournament. During my last round I felt everything came together, I hit good shots close to the pin and made a lot of putts. Finished in style with my best round of the year on the LET 66 (-5).
I couldn’t imagined a better ending of my season. I knew that I secured my LET card through LetAccess by finishing in the top 5 but because I finished this well in Spain I moved up in the Order of Merit to the 70th spot. This means that I have a better category for 2019 and I will be able to play in more events.
The fun thing was also that Fanny Cnops just came short on getting her card for the LET on the LetAcces but because of my good result in the end will she be on the tour as well next year.
No qualifying school this year and a well deserved vacation.
With all this achievements and results I moved up in the Rolex World ranking to 466.( compared with the beginning of the season is this 150 spots). Currently, I am also standing on the list for the Olympic Games of 2020 in Japan.
It was a successful year and I achieved all my goals for this season.
I want to thank everyone again for their support without you this would not be possible.
The best wishes for 2019 and another successful year!
