Soenderby Secures Maiden LET Title with Playoff Win At KPMG Women’s Irish Open

It was a spectacular final day for Smilla Tarning Soenderby as she secured a dramatic playoff victory at the 2023 KPMG Women’s Irish Open.

The Dane headed into the final day in a tie for 21st place after rounds of 71-67-72 on the first three days at Dromoland Castle.

But Soenderby fired the round of her life – a 62 (-10) – to post the clubhouse lead and was later joined by Sweden’s Lisa Pettersson and Anne Van Dam of the Netherlands.

The trio headed back to the 18th hole for the playoff where the 23-year-old reached the green in two and sunk her eagle putt to secure her maiden title on the Ladies European Tour (LET).

“I’m not quite sure what happened in the playoff! I hit a good drive,” said the newest LET winner. “It was a very long drive compared to the first round there.
