Jade Schaeffer summits the inaugural Raiffeisenbank Prague Golf Masters on LET
Frenchwoman Jade Schaeffer romped to a big win at the inaugural Raiffeisenbank Prague Golf Masters in the Czech Republic after a stellar performance on the final day at the Albatross Golf Resort in Prague.
The 25-year-old has already won a Ladies European Tour title in 2009 when she clinched the LET title in Germany and has been waiting patiently to post another victory on the tour. She pulled in a final round of 70 on a hot and sunny day in Prague to post
her second tour victory in her career.
“I’m so happy,” said long-hitting Schaeffer, in her fifth season as a professional. “It’s very good because I won two years ago and I think it’s the best sensation, the win, for the golfer. My golf today was very good and I played so well, the same as the
last day, but my putting did not rendezvous. It’s okay.”
Schaeffer has won two other events on the LET Access series but suffered a serious wrist injury a few years back. Her wrist was later operated upon and she returned to the course in May this year. Pulling a 35th finish at the start of her season,
she went over to miss three straight cuts which threatened her position on the tour list.
As a result, Schaeffer undertook a change of strategy to finally shift her slide and posted two top-20 finishes before her bid here in Prague. She posted a massive 64 in the second round, her lowest score, which later became the turning point in the aggregate
Countrywoman Julie Greciet finished for an outright second, trailing Schaeffer by one shot and was visibly delighted with her best performance so far on the tour.
“I am very happy. The putting was very good. I made 27 putts and that’s great,” said Greciet, who is on her fourth professional year on the tour.
Sweden’s Linda Wessberg finished for an outright third, one shot behind Greciet while blazing guns of the LET Becky Brewerton of Wales settled for joint fourth alongside Kylie Walker and England’s Kim Larratt.
Overnight leader Czech rookie Klara Spilkova finished for joint ninth and spoke of her jubilation with teary eyes, overwhelmed with the enormous success of the first LET event in Czech Republic.
“I was just happy. I finished with two bogeys but I was happy, because there were so many people and it’s really nice. This is good for us.”
Many of the distinguished LET players stamped their seal pf approval for the picturesque Albatross Golf Resort and many of them went over to term it as the perfect venue for the Solheim Cup.
The tour will now head to Spain for the Open de España Femenino.
