Strong finish by Pace in Saudi Arabia

Lee-Anne Pace finished with a flourish on Thursday when she signed off with a four-under-par 68 in the final round of the Ladies European Tour’s Saudi Ladies Team International which was played at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in King Abdullah Economic City in Saudi Arabia.

She carded six birdies and two bogeys as she climbed into a share of 15th with Laura Davies, nine strokes behind winner Emily Kristine Pedersen of Denmark. The Dane finished two strokes clear of Australia’s Stephanie Kyriacou, Ann van Dam of the Netherlands and Luna Sobron Galmes of Spain.

The performance also put her in 42nd spot in the Race to Costa del Sol, the Ladies European Tour’s Order of Merit. That is being led by Pedersen, with Ashleigh Buhai in 36th spot and Monique Smit in 45th.

Nicole Garcia finished with a 71 in Saudi Arabia in a share of 39th together with Casandra Hall, who carded a final-round 70. Nobuhle Dlamini of eSwatini recovered from her poor 79 in the third round to close with a 71 to end up in a share of 56th.
