Back again in Losone, the home course of the Deutsche Bank Ladies Swiss Open. I was lucky to practice on the course already a week before and as usual the course was in great shape. Unfortunately the weather was bad and it was raining cats and dogs. The concequences were: – No Pro-Am and no first tournament day as the rain would not stop.
There was casual water all over the course and made the game almost impossible.Therefore the tournament director decided to reduce the tournament on 54 instead of 72 holes.
Start on Friday
Since i am on tour, it has been the first time in my young career that the tournament started on a Friday.This was not bothering me as i felt good and i was very comfortable with my drives and irons. The first round ended with a 73 (+1). This was close to the cut and i knew that i had to score better the next day.
Saturday & Sunday
Steady long game
My 2nd day starting time on Saturday was 14:35 pm due to heavy rain and a stunderstorm. I immediately felt comfortable with my swing and rhythm. But on the greens, putts just would not fall. On the second nine (i started on Hole Nr 10), my irons to the green got very close. So i started to birdie and i finished the second nine 33 (-2) therefore i would enter the final field and play the next day.
I knew i could make a big jump on the leaderboard if i would continue playing as the last nine holes of previous day. A 75 (+3) the last day resulted in a 57th total ranking of the tournament. Not really satisfying but i think i am very close to a good result. This gives me more drive for the upcoming tournaments.
