After three days of team event we, Team Lampert, ended up on a sad 36th place, also called last place. We did not make enough birdies and a few too many bogeys. Sometimes it is ok to have a few bad holes in this kind of format, but it requires that two out of your team mates do well on the same hole, and this was not the case this week.
Despite the low ranking on the leaderboard we still enjoyed our time on the course and with each other. My individual scores were 77, 75, 77 (+10) which gave me an 82nd place. There was so much good golf in all the rounds, but I did make a few too many mistakes for the score to be what I wanted. We keep working hard, and the score will hopefully soon show how much I actually have learned this year.
A huge congratulations to the Norwegian Marianne Skarpnord who became the individual champion! She played amazing golf, especially the last two rounds, and secured her fifth LET victory by winning the play off against Atthaya Thitikul on the 18th hole.
Tomorrow, Thursday July 8th, the first event of the Aramco Team Series begins in London, England. My team mates for the three day event will be Karolin Lampert, Michele Thomson and the amateur Aref Laham. We tee it up at 7:36 Thursday morning and will do our best for both the team and ourselves as this is an event with two different leaderboards.
Find both leaderboards on the Ladies European Tour app or on this link:
