Dimmock qualifies for Evian with first LET win

Jabra Ladies Open: What happened at Evian Resort Golf Club?

22-year-old, Annabel Dimmock, ended a five year wait for her first LET title with a one-shot victory in France.

In a rollercoaster of a final round, it was the Englishwoman who was able to come out on top, holding off French amateur, Pauline Roussin Bouchard.

Dimmock trailed by one at the beginning of Sunday but got off to a brilliant start with four birdies in seven holes.

At the turn, the scores were tied and the duo were some way ahead of the chasing pack. It was to be a back-nine shootout and it did not disappoint.

The eventual champion took the lead after 10, capitalising on a Bouchard Bogey, but the Frenchwoman’s birdies at 14 and 15 lifted her back alongside Dimmock.

But, it was what followed on the next two holes that settled the result.

Bouchard dunked her tee shot into water on the 16th and her good work quickly unravelled as she carded back-to-back double-bogeys on 16 and 17 to all but end her challenge.

Despite a bogey at the 17th, Dimmock was able to close out the victory on a landmark weekend for English golf in which Bronte Law sealed her first LPGA Tour victory.

Jabra Ladies Open report: Talking point

This week’s event took place at Evian Resort Golf Club – the home of the Evian Championship.

We have been provided with an early look at the course ahead of July’s major, but there was more to it than that.

The event didn’t simply give the players and spectators a glimpse of what is to come, but there were also two spots in the field up for grabs.

Of course, Annabel Dimmock earned one of these spots, as this week’s champion and the second place, quite rightly, was given to Pauline Roussin Bouchard.

We’re sure both of them are eager to get back to Evian.
