Lee-Anne Pace rounded out a solid week on Sunday with a four-under-par 68 for the final round of the Ladies European Tour’s Tipsport Ladies Czech Open at Royal Beroun Golf Club.

Her final round of five birdies and a bogey took her to nine-under-par for the 54-hole tournament, and a share of eighth.

In the end, she was a long way off the winning total of 17-under-par, set by Spain’s Marta Martin, who closed with a nine-under-par 63 to move to 17-under. That gave her a four-stroke win over Rosie Davies of England, who also finished up with a 63.

Finland’s Ursula Wikstrom, Wales’ Chloe Williams and Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall all finished in a share of third place on 12-under-par.

Martin went on a birdie spree during the final day rolling in seven consecutive birdies on holes five through 11 which helped her secure victory.

It was the Spaniard’s second professional victory and her second in Czechia after winning the Amundi Czech Ladies Challenge on the LET Access Series in 2023.

“I’m very very happy! Czech has a special thing for me,” said the Spanish star. “It was a phenomenal round out there with many birdies and I really enjoyed it.

“The crowd were wonderful people and I’m really happy and thankful for everybody that came out. Of course, I am always happy to come to Czechia.”

Nobuhle Dlamini of eSwatini closed off her week with a two-under-par 70 to finish in a share of 43rd on three-under. Nicole Garcia had a closing one-over 73 and finished in a share of 59th on one-under.
