After opening with rounds of 72 and 69, Nocera had nine birdies, one bogey and one double bogey in the third and final round.
She conceded a six at the par-four first hole was not the perfect start. “It was stupid. I started off on the left side on the drive. I had a bad lie and I hit my shot short of the bunker. My feet were in the bunker and my ball was lying on the sandy area. I hit it fat and it hit the bunker on the lip. I couldn’t hit it out normally so I had to chip and made a good putt for a double bogey. Even if I made that putt for a double bogey it was a good one because a three-putt would have been really hard.”
Nocera wanted to thank her coach Olivier Leglise, who despite many appearances on tour has never seen his star pupil win. “He sent me such a nice text message last night and I told him “I just want to prove to myself that I’m the best.” I hope he is happy,” she said.
