Overview of 2016 Tipsport Golf Masters
Denmark’s Nanna Koerstz Madsen gave a dominant final round display in the Czech Republic as she strode to her maiden Ladies European Tour title at the weather-interrupted Tipsport Golf Masters. The 21-year-old from Smoerum fired six birdies in a closing 65 – the best round of the day at Golf Park Pilsen – to end on 15-under-par and five strokes ahead of Scotland’s Pamela Pretswell and overnight leader Stacey Keating of Australia. In her second year on tour, Madsen delivered on the great promise shown when she won Lalla Aicha Tour School in December 2014. She also virtually assured herself of a place in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
About Tipsport Golf Masters
The Tipsport Golf Masters was the seventh Ladies European Tour event in 2016 and the first on European soil. A field of 132 competitors, including 16 invited players, participated in the 54-hole tournament, with a cut to the leading 50 players and those tied after round two. It was an important tournament for many of the players in the field as the final LET qualification event for both the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and Ricoh Women’s British Open. A total of 14 players in the top 60 on the Women’s Olympic Ranking participated. The week kicked off with a Junior Pro-Am and a typically vibrant players’ party at the Pilsner Urquell brewery.
