de norske hevde seg på året Ladies European Tour?
30.01 Ladies European Tour (LET):
Ekstra spennende for nordmenn i
Norge har flere på LET enn noen gang. Det kan bli svært spennende å følge med.
Med fire norske spillere med i denne ligaen blir det interessant å se hvordan
Norge kan hevde seg på årets Europa Tour.
Her spiller Marianne
Skarpnord, Tonje Daffinrud, Caroline Martens og Madelene Stavnar. Første
turnering er Oates Vic Open i Victoria, Australia 9. -12 februar. Her
stiller ikke Caroline Martens, men de tre andre.
Nå er terminlisten kommet. Det ser ut til at årets terminliste blir mye mer
innholdsrik enn i fjor. Da var den til gjengjeld temmelig tynn etter flere
avlysninger av turneringer de siste årene.
Her er nyheter og høydepunkter:

currently the only professional event in the world that stages both men’s and
women’s championships concurrently on the same golf course.
The second new Ladies European Tour event will be the Estrella Damm
Mediterranean Ladies Open, to be played at Club de Golf Terramar in the
beautiful, coastal town of Sitges, just south of Barcelona, on April 20-23.
The Ladies European Tour will stage a third soon to be named new tournament in
Southern Europe in late June, while the Turkish Ladies Open in Antalya is back
on the schedule.
There will be 11 tournaments with purses of at least €500,000, including the
Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open, on July 27-30, at Dundonald
Links in Scotland, now a co-sanctioned event between the LET and LPGA, with a
significantly increased purse of US$1.5 million.
A two-week festival of women’s professional golf continues in Scotland with the
RICOH Women’s British Open taking place at Kingsbarns Golf Links for the first
time on August 3-6. The fourth Major of the year will also be the final
qualification event for The 2017 European Solheim Cup Team, where Captain Annika
Sörenstam will announce her full 12-woman squad following the conclusion of play
on Sunday, 6th August, 12 days before the 15th Solheim Cup at Des Moines Golf
Club in Iowa, on August 18-20.
LET Chief Executive Officer Ivan Khodabakhsh said: “2017 promises to be a great
year for the Ladies European Tour and we are really excited to tee off our
season with a new event in Australia. Our schedule includes a minimum of four
new or returning events, plus several more to be confirmed shortly. With 18 live
televised events, there will be more exposure than ever this year. Our members
will have the opportunity to compete for record prize money, across a wide range
of world class tournaments, as we continue to develop women’s golf and the
global footprint of the LET.”
The Ladies European Tour has more action than ever in 2017.
