Norway's Marita Engzelius claimed the Terre Blanche Ladies Open title in a weather shortened event at the Terre Blanche Resort in Tourrettes on Sunday. Strong winds curtailed the tournament to 36 holes and Engzelius, with a three shot lead going into the final day, took home the trophy.
The 30-year-old recorded rounds of 67 and 69, to sit at 8 under after the first two days. Sunday brought strong winds during the morning and just as the leading groups were nearing the turn, it was decided that conditions were becoming dangerous on the tree lined course.
Play was suspended with the hope of the winds subsiding in the afternoon. The players resumed at 14.30 but shortly afterwards, the final day was cancelled.
Engzelius commented, "It was not the way I wanted to do it but it was tough out there today. It seems like it’s a good decision. It’s a lot of fun to have won, I played great in the first two rounds and I’m happy with that."
Emma Nilsson of Sweden finished in second place at 5 under par and Ursula Wikstrom of Finland and Spain's Noemi Jimenez, were both a shot further back in third.
