“I played fantastic today. I hit 18 greens and holed some putts that I needed to. It was just a really cruisy, easy day. I started out a bit rough. I bogeyed the first and birdied the next and bogeyed the next but I got my nerves on track.” Lacey posted six further birdies from the sixth hole.
A two-hole play-off between five players determined who took the last two full cards.
England’s Natalie Booth and Camille Fallay of France were successful over Italy’s Isabella Maconi, America’s Beth Allen and Australia’s Bronwyn Mullins-Lane.
Maconi and Allen were eliminated at the first extra hole, the par-three 17th, while Mullins-Lane lost out at the par-four 18th.
