Overview of 2015 Lacoste Ladies Open de France
Céline Herbin broke into the LET winner’s circle when she won a three-hole play-off against Danish rookie Emily Kristine Pedersen at the Lacoste Ladies Open de France, becoming the first home winner of the title in 11 years. Having started the final round tied for the lead, she eventually won with a par on the third extra hole, the par-4 18th at Golf de Chantaco, after Pedersen three putted for a bogey, however there would be more to come from the spirited Dane later in the year.
About the Lacoste Ladies Open de France
Five Solheim Cup players including Cristie Kerr from the victorious United States team and Azahara Muñoz, Carlota Ciganda, Charley Hull and Gwladys Nocera from the European team made the short trip from Golf Club St. Leon-Rot in Germany to play in the Lacoste Ladies Open de France at Golf de Chantaco in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Aquitaine. The beautiful venue between the Atlantic Ocean and French Pyrenees set the backdrop for a convivial tournament, with a wonderful welcome party at the venue which is intertwined with the history of the Lacoste family’s sporting success. In the end, it was a gripping competition between two undecorated players and the home galleries were thrilled when their home grown player became the first French champion since Stephanie Arricau in 2004.
