Feb 19, 2023 | Featured, South Africans abroad

Lee-Anne Pace rounded out a solid weekend on Sunday with a four-under-par 68 lifting her into a share of 14th place in the Ladies European Tour’s Aramco Saudi Ladies International at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club.

Pace made eagle on the ninth after birdies on one and four to reach the turn in 32. Unfortunately, she made a pair of bogeys on 12 and 13 which set her charge back somewhat, but she regained both of those shots with two birdies in succession on 15 and 16.

She was on 11-under after the 72 holes, 10 shots behind the winner, world number one Lydia Ko of New Zealand. Ko had a closing 68 to win by one from India’s Aditi Ashoka, who also had a 68 as she finished on 20-under. Manon De Roey of Belgium and Americans Lilia Vu and Lexi Thompson finished in a share of third on 19-under.

Three strokes behind Pace, in a share of 24th were Nicole Garcia and Ashleigh Buhai after rounds of 70 and 72 respectively.
