MacLaren Claims Second LETAS Title in Azores

England's Meghan MacLaren claimed her second victory on the LET Access Series with a two stroke win in the Azores Ladies Open, at Terceira Golf Club on Terceira Island.

It is the second title for the daughter of David MacLaren - executive director of the European Seniors Tour - in LETAS tournaments, but the first as a professional, since last year, when she was victorious in Zaragoza, still as an amateur. It is, indeed, striking that MacLaren already has two LETAS titles in only four tournaments played. It looks predestined that she will enjoy a successful career, already having a card to play some events on the LET, and with her victory today seizing the number one ranking on the LETAS Order of Merit this season.

Melissa Reid produces sensational 62 to open up big lead in Spain

England’s Melissa Reid carded a course record third round of nine-under-par 62 at Club de Golf Terramar on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead into the final round of the Estrella Damm Mediterranean Ladies Open in Sitges, Spain.

The 29-year-old from Derby, who claimed her sixth Ladies European Tour title at the Oates Vic Open in Australia in February, made nine birdies in her first 15 holes but bogeyed the par-5 16th to effectively rule out equalling the LET’s all-time scoring record of 11-under for 18 holes. However, she nailed a long, curling putt on the 18th green for her 10th birdie of the day, sealing a personal career low round, against the stunning backdrop of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea.

Nordqvist leads at Estrella Damm Mediterranean Ladies Open

World No.10 Anna Nordqvist fired a five-under-par 66 in the first round of the Estrella Damm Mediterranean Ladies Open on Thursday to lead by a stroke over five other players at Club de Golf Terramar near Barcelona. The four-time European Solheim Cup player made six birdies and one bogey on a breezy day in the sea-side town of Sitges.

Nordqvist was in the first group out, starting from the 10th tee at 8am. She said after her round: “I couldn’t feel my hands for the first five holes and I know I grew up in Sweden, but I’ve been in the heat for so long now that I don’t do very well with the cold weather. It was just very cold this morning so the ball wasn’t flying as far and it didn’t seem like it was compressing as it has over the last couple of days. It was playing a good two-club wind on the last hole and you’ve got to adjust to the chillier weather.”
