After sealing the win and being sprayed in champagne by her French friends on tour, Derrey said: “It’s awesome! Finally! Last year I finished on the podium three times so I’m finally the winner.” She had four birdies and one bogey in the final round and caught overnight leader Klara Spilkova at seven-under after making a long breaking putt for birdie on the 13th green.

She finished with five steady pars to claim her second professional title, after winning the Tate & Lyle Championship on the US Symetra Tour in 2011. “I wasn’t thinking about when my next victory would come. I tried to do my best and keep believing I could win,” continued the fourth-year LET member. “I just learned to keep patient and play my own game and that’s what I’ve been working on mentally. It’s a really nice course. I think it’s tough and you have to play target golf and really focus on yourself and your own game. For my part, I can’t really go for par fives.” heets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software.
