Tamburlini Storms To Emphatic Seven Shot Victory In Joburg

Chiara Tamburlini sealed her first Ladies European Tour (LET) title in style at the Joburg Ladies Open as she dominated the field over the weekend to win by an emphatic seven shots.

After a faultless performance on Saturday moved the Swiss rookie six shots clear on 14-under par, Tamburlini completed the job on Sunday carding seven birdies en route to a round of 70 (-3).

“This obviously means a lot,” she said. “Being able to win on the LET in like my seventh start or so this year is really special. It just feels like all the hard work has paid off. I am honestly speechless at the moment and beyond grateful to be here and be able to win this tournament today.”

The 24-year-old started hot at Modderfontein Golf Club birdying her first two holes. A bogey on the par-3 3rd briefly halted her momentum before Tamburlini went in to cruise control, birdying the 5th and 9th to go out in 34 and move seven shots clear.
