Round 3: With another good round Maiken and Knud climbed another few spots on the leaderboard and ended up at a T35. The last round was a round with three birdies on the front and two bogeys on the back, resulting in a round of 71 (-1). This is so far Maiken’s best tournament on tour score wise and second to best placement wise. She would herself rank this finish over the T30th in South Africa as the field at this event included all the best players in Europe at the moment. With a smile on her face Maiken and Knud got in their car and started driving down to Switzerland for the next event which will be a LET Access, the level below LET.
Round 2: One hour after round 1 her tee time was at 9:00. She played very steady with very few errors but not too many great birdie opportunities. Two birdies and two bogeys resulted in a level par round, 72. Maiken is very pleased with her game at the moment, but has not let herself chase the pins as much as she wants to. This has resulted in few mistakes which is always good! She has made her second cut in four events and is happy with herself and her caddie and will do her best to keep the good play going for the last day Sunday.
Round 1: The play was solid and the ball-striking was good. The puts wouldn’t drop, but an overall good first round. After the first day Maiken was -2, but because of lightning the girls were called off the course with only a few remaining holes to go. Maiken had a par put left on her second to last hole when they heard the horns sound over the entire course for immediate suspension of play. Right after everyone got to the clubhouse the weather changed dramatically. The rain flew sideways and the wind blew several tents over. The message was clear, at 19:08 only a short time after we got to the clubhouse, they were told the play was suspended for the day and everyone who did not finish were to come back and be ready to play at 07:30 Saturday. Saturday at 07:30 Maiken unfortunately missed her par put which was a little over to meter, but finished the last hole on par signing her card with a 71 (-1).
Maiken has arrived in Czech and so far everything is going well. The views are beautiful and the course is in good shape. Maiken and Knud took the ferry to Kiel, Germany and drove the remaining part by car to avoid unnecessary exposure in these corona-times. Everyone get tested before leaving their own country, and some even upon their arrival depending on where they come from. Players, caddies, and voluntaries are checked every morning and must also complete a questionnaire before being allowed into the tournament area. So safety has been a very central theme throughout the event, which is both important and comforting for the players.
