MARBELLA – LADIES EUROPEAN TOUR: SPANISH OPEN 2018

The 23year-old Dutch golfer claimed her 2nd title in a row in Spain, winning the Andalucía Costa Del Sol Open de España 2018 when she sank that putt on the last day, having scored a total of 13-under-par. Azahara Muñoz, the winner of the last two years, was hot on her heals, but Anne kept her nerves and never seemingly let it get to her, carding 3 birdies in her last 5 holes. Muñoz tried her best, but was left to watch the trophy slip away. Catriona Matthew from Scotland finished 6-under-par, one shot ahead of Spain’s Natalia Escuriola and Germany’s Olivia Cowan. Watch the video now, to find out how things went on the last day of the tournament, and why Anne really loves competing in Spain!
