Chiara Noja had a perfect homecoming as she secured her Ladies European Tour card for 2023 with a third-place finish at the Lavaux Ladies Open in Switzerland on the LET Access Series.

The 16-year-old finished five shots behind winner Sara Kouskova but was smiling like a champ knowing her playing rights were secure for next season and she can now relax back at home in Dubai, along with her studies as she prepares for her GCSEs.

“These months away from home, family and friends have been more stressful and exhausting than I could have imagined,” she wrote on social media.

Next up is the an Aramco Team Series double-header in New York in October and then Jeddah in November.
