Lee-Anne Pace finished in a share of sixth place on Saturday after carding a closing level-par 72 in the final round of the Ladies European Tour’s Mallorca Ladies Open at Golf Son Muntaner in Palma, Mallorca, Spain.
Pace made three birdies, a bogey and a double-bogey in the final round to stay at five-under-par for the 54-hole tournament. That left her eight shots behind the winner, rookie Alexandra Försterling from Berlin, Germany.
The German closed with a five-under 67, which gave he an emphatic five-stroke victory over fellow rookie Trichat Cheenglab from Thailand. Anne van Dam finished a shot further back in solo third place, with Caroline Hedwall and Marta Sanz Barrio tied for fourth. Second round leader Chloe Williams shared sixth with first-round leader Kristyna Napoleaova and Pace.
Casandra Alexander closed out a solid tournament with a one-under 71 moving her into a share of 11th at three-under-par. She made six birdies in her round, but she also had three bogeys and a double.
Nicole Garcia shared 51st after closing with a one-over 73 to move to six-over for the tournament.
