8th at the Portuguese Ladies Amateur Championship🇵🇹

 

I started off the 2018 season in Portugal at the West Cliffs Golf Course. This was my fifth time competing in this tournament which is usually the season kick-off for a lot of European players. This year it was held at a different course on the Portuguese coast, just one hour north of Lisbon. West Cliffs is a new Links course, well designed with scenic views on every hole and different wind direction on every tee box.

 

 

It was a great test of my capabilities to play a very tough course in rain, cold and under strong wind conditions; it blew up to 50 km/h. I started with +3 and +5 the first two days avoiding big numbers with solid golf which put me in a good position for the third day. Unfortunately, on day three I had one terrible hole – Nr. 16, Par 3 with no room for error – the wind was blowing left to right and I hit into a deep and steep waste area on the left side needing some additional strokes to get out and marking a 10 on my score card.

 

 

Shooting 74 (+2) on the final day, which was the best score of the day, put me at 8th place after 72 holes. I finished the tournament 6 strokes off the winning score +18. I’m really happy with my placement on this tough course during very strong winds and tough conditions over the last 4 days. Now I’m back at school finishing off my last few tests for this semester.
