The Dutch golfer gets the victory at Aloha Golf for the second year in a row . Azahara Muñoz, finally fourth ranked, returns to star in a remarkable performance in a tournament he has won in 2016 and 2017 and where he was second in 2018.
Anne Van Dam has once again turned her relationship with Spain into a permanent idyll after imposing herself for the second time in a row at the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, where Málaga's Azahara Muñoz, finally ranked fourth, has once again starred in a remarkable performance in a tournament that he also has in his medal twice. The brave Dutch golfer reissued the glory achieved in 2018 based on a tenacious and aggressive game that was especially evident in an end of competition as exciting as uncertain. At his side, until the last blow, the Danish Nanna Madsen fought hard to avoid a destination that seems written beforehand when the player from the Netherlands goes to Spain. The Nordic golfer, leader at the beginning of the last day and leader along many holes of the same, had everything in front when she scored a birdie in decisive appearance on the 16th hole, again commanding the board alone with a very narrow margin for the reaction of its rivals.
However, already in the 18, with the tension to the surface, with a blow of advantage over Anne Van Dam, the Danish Nanna Madsen sent the ball to the water from the tee, a determining error that put the victory on the plate to a player who completed the entire second round with 9 consecutive pairs that nevertheless are worth a second consecutive victory. The first hours of the decisive day passed between multiple attempts to acquire maximum prominence. It was tried first by the Indian Aditi Ashok, who snatched the lead from Nanna Madsen thanks to three consecutive birdies between holes 2 and 4 that revolutionized the first measures of the final stretch of the tournament, benefiting from a double bogey of the Danish in hole 3 That turned on all the alarms. That apparent symptom of weakness of the Nordic to face maximum pressures, reproduced later in the 18th hole, seemed at that time a simple anecdote since, a birdie in the 7th hole and, above all, a spectacular eagle in the 9th allowed to return to the Nordic to the longed for first position
Por allí pululaba ya, a la expectativa, Anne Van Dam, maniobrando con esfuerzo para reeditar el triunfo conseguido en 2018. La holandesa rascó birdies al campo al principio y al final de la su primera vuelta, una buena declaración de intenciones ganadoras pero en ese instante insuficiente toda vez que Nanna Madsen seguía manteniendo una renta de dos golpes de ventaja cuando los partidos estelares comenzaban a gestionar los últimos nueve hoyos.
La plácida situación se tornó no obstante en negros nubarrones cuando en el hoyo 13, un par 3 relativamente franco, la danesa envío la bola a los arbustos del límite de la calle, una posición defectuosa que generó un inquietante doble bogey en su tarjeta. Anne Van Dam, casi sin quererlo, se encontró de bruces con un empate en la parte más alta de la tabla antes de que el hoyo 18 dictase a su favor su acuífera sentencia.
Entre las españolas, Azahara Muñoz volvió a ser la representante más inspirada, bien secundada desde su cuarta plaza por la décima alcanzada por una sólida Nuria Iturrios. La malagueña tardó seis hoyos en mover su marcador, un tramo excesivo de carencia en el acierto que en el marco de una actuación objetivamente sobresaliente.
The malagueña, boosted by its audience, went through its best moment between holes 9 and 12, when three almost consecutive birdies started the enthusiasm of their numerous followers, making Azahara Muñoz among the best in a tournament that has been debated in recent years between the Malaga-winner in 2016 and 2017- and Anne Van Dam (2018 and 2019), a player who when she arrives in Spain does everything she plays. AROUND THE GREEN Anne Van Dam, a player seated in the elite Consolidated as one of the best European and world players, the Dutch Anne Van Dam has forged much of the best of her career in Spain, where her results have been excellent. Special mention for his victory at the Damm Mediterranean Ladies Open Star achieved in September 2018, a prelude to his second victory in our country in the Women's Spanish Open, just two months later. The Dutch golfer, who happens to be the player who reaches more meters on average from the tee in the LET, has again reissued laurels in 2019, year in which she has also swelled her medal win with the victory in the Solheim Cup as European team member.
The Spanish give war on the last day Malaga Azahara Muñoz has been the best Spanish with a final lap of -1, finally fourth ranked ahead of a solid Nuria Iturrioz, tenth tied with -6 total. Behind, after starring in a great weekend, Beatriz Recari and Luna Sobrón finished, both in 20th place. For their part, Malaga’s Noemí Jiménez, with twists in the last two days of competition, was placed in the position 26. María Parra and Fátima Fernández Cano (position 32), Carmen Alonso and Harang Lee (position 39), María Hernández (position 45) and Marta Sanz Barrio (position 55) completed the performance of the Spaniards in this Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de España Femenino.
