Swede Success for Pettersson at Helsingborg Open

Sweden’s Lisa Pettersson fired a phenomenal final round of five-under-under 67 to claim her first LET title by a stroke at the Helsingborg Open. 

The 27-year-old from Taby started the last day one shot behind the second-round leaders, Nicole Garcia from South Africa and Ana Pelaez Trivino of Spain.

It took another 16 holes for her to tie for the lead with Pelaez Trivino, until she finally won with a dramatic eagle.

Playing in the penultimate group, in warm and benign conditions, Pettersson went out in 35 after making a solitary birdie on the par-5 fifth hole. She bogeyed the narrow par-4 11th but then picked up birdies at the 12th, 15th and 16th holes, before making an incredible eagle on the par-5 18th to come home in 32.
