Maiden Win For Gorlei On Sunshine Ladies Tour

Your first professional win is always a momentous occasion, and even for someone who has achieved as much as Cara Gorlei has, it was a special day at Glendower Golf Club on Friday as she claimed the Jabra Ladies Classic title on the Sunshine Ladies Tour for her maiden triumph.

In the four years that Gorlei has been a pro, she had racked up 11 top-10 finishes, earned more than R600,000 in prize money, and has also qualified for the Ladies European Tour (LET). On Friday she sealed the deal and got her hands on her first professional trophy by one stroke at Glendower.

Gorlei was lying second, two shots behind at the start of the final round, and she kept herself in the conversation throughout, even as LET stars Stacy Bregman, Moa Folke, Gabriella Cowley and Lisa Pettersson all made a charge, while overnight leader Maiken Bing Paulsen also stayed in contention.
