Marta Martin has won her maiden LET title at the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open

Marta Martin fired an exceptional 63 (-9) on the final day of the 2024 Tipsport Czech Ladies Open to win by four shots.

The Spanish star had produced rounds of 69 and 67 on the first two days to sit in a share of second place after 36 holes at Royal Beroun Golf Club.

Martin went on a birdie spree during the final day rolling in seven consecutive birdies on holes five through 11 which helped her secure victory with a total of 17-under-par.

It was the Spaniard’s second professional victory and her second in Czechia after winning the Amundi Czech Ladies Challenge on the LET Access Series in 2023.

“I’m very very happy! Czech has a special thing for me,” said the Spanish star. “It was a phenomenal round out there with many birdies and I really enjoyed it.

“The crowd were wonderful people and I’m really happy and thankful for everybody that came out. Of course, I am always happy to come to Czechia.”

Final round for Martin

Martin got off to a hot start making a birdie on her second hole before rolling in seven consecutively on holes five through 11.

The 27-year-old then dropped her only shot of the day on the 12th but immediately bounced back a birdie on 13 and rolled in another on 15 to seal her lowest ever round on the LET of nine-under-par.

She continued: “I made seven birdies in a row, and I just kept hitting good shots and they ended up very close and I kept making putts. It was really fun.

“I was pretty consistent this week, I didn’t really miss many shots and my misses were playable and of course, today everything just rolled out. I left the ball very close and rolled in a lot of putts.

“I did a lot of putting preparation, I was struggling in the past couple of events to make birdies. In the last tournaments I just had one or two birdies per round so making 10 birdies today and many in the last few days is always rewarding.”

Best ever result for Rosie Davies

England’s Rosie Davies finished in second place – her best ever result on the LET – after also firing a 63 (-9) on the final day.

Davies birdied holes one and three before making an eagle on the seventh, she then dropped her only shot of the day on the eighth hole.

The 34-year-old rolled in six birdies on her back nine to secure a 63 and finish with a total of 13-under-par.

“That’s my lowest ever, I’m still a bit shaky after that,” said Davies. “It was unbelievable, I don’t really know what to say. It was one of those where the hole looked really big, and I just hit it good.

“I have been playing really well, I have just not been scoring really well, so this was one of those days where everything went in. I missed the green on 16 so it was a bit of a shock that I was chipping, but I hit a really good chip shot there.

“I said to my caddie on 17 that I couldn’t feel my arms and he punched me and said can you feel that? I said yeah, I can. We had a bit of a wait on 18 which was good and talked about the football. I’m really pleased with nine-under.”

The rest of the field

Finland’s Ursula Wikstrom, Wales’ Chloe Williams and Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall all finished in a share of third place on 12-under-par.

It was a good final day for Wikstrom, who fired a round of 66 (-6) which included eight birdies and one double bogey.

“I always enjoy it, it’s a special week to have my son on the bag and have time with him and it always brings a little bit of a different feeling and he’s a good caddie! He’s taking care of me nicely on the golf course,” said the Finn.

“My game has been a bit off, things have been okay, but I just haven’t been able to post a good round. It’s quite nice to finally have a better result and be there for the final day and be close to contention. I played today with Sara [Kouskova] and we had all the crowds there and that always makes it nice to play with people following you.”

Austria’s Emma Spitz ended her week in sixth place on 11-under-par after a final day 67 (-5) with Spain’s Nuria Iturrioz one shot further back on 10-under-par after shooting a 66 (-6).

Five players finished in a share of eighth place with Slovenia’s Pia Babnik, Finland’s Sanna Nuutinen, South Africa’s Lee-Anne Pace, Spain’s Maria Hernandez and England’s Hannah Screen all on nine-under-par.

In the 2024 LET Order of Merit, Martin jumps up from 39th to seventh place thanks to her victory and now has 791.95 points while with her sixth-place finish Spitz has moved into 10th place.

Next up for the LET is the VP Bank Swiss Ladies Open which takes place at Golfpark Holzhäusern from June 28-30.
