Third place at the the Trust Golf Links Series at Ramside Hall Golf Club was enough for Dubai-based teenager Chiara Noja to reclaim top spot in the Ladies European Tour Access Series Order of Merit.
The German battled against some nasty weather and is now on 1,494.25 points, ahead of New Zealand’s Momoka Kobori (1,332.75 points), Dutch amateur Lauren Holmey (822.50 points), England’s Gemma Clews (821.75 points), Sweden’s Anna Magnusson (790.88 points), and Australia’s Kristalle Blum (781.75). These players are now all within reach of the elite six places that will secure a full LET card for the 2023 season.
“That was less than serene weather,” Noja said. “More of a grind in the wind than I anticipated. Thank you to all who came to support this week, and to the organisers, volunteers for such a great event.”
Thailand’s Chanettee Wannasaen carded a final round of level-par 73 to win the event at Ramside Hall Golf Club by three shots on 11-under from compatriot Arpichaya Yubol, who carded the round of the day of five-under. Noja was third on three-under.
“It means a lot to win in Europe and I am very happy with my game. I felt really confident today and I knew I could make it,” said Wannasaen.
The LET Access Series will continue with the Trust Golf Links Series at The Musselburgh Golf Club from July 14–16.
