Gustavsson Secures First LET Title In France

After eight years of trying and in her 129th start, Sweden’s Johanna Gustavsson finally became a tournament champion on the LET with a decisive victory in the Lacoste Ladies Open de France.

With a closing round of six-under-par 65, the 30-year-old from Orebro finished with a 54-hole total of 197, 16-under-par, at Golf Barrière in Deauville. 

Having started the day with a one-stroke lead over her compatriot Moa Folke, it was an exciting final round battle as the pair duelled for the lead over the front nine. 

However, a hole-out eagle at the par-4 13th, where Gustavsson holed her second shot from 112 metres using a pitching wedge, proved decisive and Folke bogeyed the next hole, giving Gustavsson a four-stroke advantage. 

Although Folke birdied the short 17th, Gustavsson had two putts for a three-stroke victory on the 18th green.
