Titled as a team, Jessica Korda has the cards in hand to claim victory alone. Pauline Roussin-Bouchard, second, will try to take advantage of the slightest misstep of the leader to play spoilsport.
Pauline Roussin-Bouchard, results
After signing the lowest score in the history of the LET in the first round (-11), Jessica Korda returned to play under par this Friday.
Starting on the 10th, his looping start on par did not prevent him from playing -4 thanks to four birdies in his last nine holes. Way ahead individually, the American has already won a title at this tournament. In fact, together with her teammates Tereza Melecka and Noora Komulainen, she won the two-lap team classification, one step ahead of the team led by Pauline Roussin-Bouchard.
The tricolor also played well again this Friday at La Reserva Club de Sotogrande. As leader, he completed the first leg of this 18th hole at -4 and the return at par, despite two bogeys, to climb to second place.
With six points behind Jessica Korda, we will have to wait, however, for a misstep from the leader. Alain Alberti’s pupil will also have to be wary of the youngest of the Korda, Nelly, who follows her at -8 in 3rd position, or even the Spanish Ana Peláez Triviño (-7, 4th).
Two other tricolors will also have their word as Anne-Lise Caudal and Emma Grechi (-4, 9th) have settled in the top 10. The Basque player returned a second consecutive 70 (-2), the Girondin signed an excellent 67 ( – 5) and performed well in qualifying.
Four other tricolors obtained the right to play on the last day: Agathe Sauzon (par, 29th), Céline Herbin, Charlotte Liautier (+2, 40th) and Anne-Charlotte Mora (+4, 58th). Roussin-Bouchard turned professional in August 2021 and scored a victory in only her second event as a professional, the Skaftö Open on the Ladies European Tour, two weeks after ending her life as an amateur, where she shot a second-round 60 ( −9). Roussin-Bouchard got her card for the 2022 LPGA Tour through the qualifying school.
