Cecilie Lundgreen is aiming to capture her third trophy of the 2012 LET Access Series season at the Samso Ladies Open in Denmark this week.
The Norwegian hopes to ride the crest of the wave after winning the Women’s Bank Open in Finland on Sunday, her second title after capturing the Kristianstad Åhus Ladies Open in Sweden in May.
Lundgreen is half Danish and with a strong record in the Nordic region, she feels confident that she can continue her run of form at Samso Golfklub, located on a beautiful island west of Copenhagen, which hosted the Samso Classic on the ECCO Tour in June this year.
The venue is holding the €20,000 Samso Ladies Open from Thursday 16th to Saturday 18th August, with a field of 49 entrants from 20 different countries competing.
The event will serve as the final for the national breast cancer charity tournament called the ‘Pink Cup’, which is played in every golf club throughout Denmark.
The first two rounds will take place in a Pro Am format, while there will be a cut after 36 holes to the leading 26 players and those tied.
Lundgreen is one of four of this year’s LETAS tournament winners competing, along with Marion Ricordeau, who won the Terre Blanche Ladies Open, Pamela Pretswell, the winner of the Ljungbyhed Park PGA Ladies Open and Anastasia Kostina, winner of the GolfStream Ladies Open.
With five tournaments to be played this season, there is an ongoing battle for the top three places on the 2012 LETAS Ranking that will earn membership of the Ladies European Tour for 2013.
Players in fourth to 15th positions will have the opportunity to progress to the final stage of LET Tour School, thereby missing the first qualifying event.
Ricordeau, from France, currently leads the LETAS Order of Merit, followed by Scotland’s Pretswell, then Lundgreen in third place.
Russian Kostina is currently ranked fourth, followed by Scotland’s Katy McNicoll, who is also competing, along with Denmark’s Julie Tvede, ranked seventh and Swede Viva Schlasberg, ranked tenth.
In addition to the professionals, there are four Danish amateurs in the field, with Daisy Nielsen, Nicole Broch Larssen, Charlotte Kring Lorentzen and Astrid Sej.
