Casandra Hall fired a three-under-par 68 in the final round on Saturday to get herself into a top-20 finish in the Ladies European Tour’s Lacoste Ladies Open De France at Golf Club de Medoc.
She made six birdies, but three bogeys meant she wasn’t able to finish even higher up on the leaderboard. She was on one-under for the 54-hole tournament in a seven-way tie for 20th, 10 strokes behind the winner Celine Boutier of France. Boutier birdied the last hole to edge Scotland’s Kylie Henry by one.
Hall had an early bogey when she dropped a shot on the third, but birdies on six, seven and nine meant she turned in two-under 34. She gave up both of those shots with bogeys on 10 and 11, but she fought back strongly with three birdies down the stretch, in 15, 17 and 18.
Swaziland’s Nobuhle Dlamini also closed with a 68 to move into a share of 27th on level-par. Nicole Garcia carded a final-round level-par 71 to finish the tournament on two-over in a share of 43rd.
Two other Frenchwomen, Pauline Roussin Bouchard and Anais Meyssonnier, rounded out the top five on eight-over, together with Magdalena Simmermacher of Argentina. They finished three behind Boutier.
