L.E.T. Turkish Airlines Ladies Open. Lee-Ann Sets the Pace May 12 2013

Turkish Airlines Ladies Open Lee-Ann Pace won the L.E.T. Turkish Airlines Ladies Open on the tough par 73 National Golf Club at Antalya, Turkey. She had set the pace and was sitting in the club-house waiting to see if anyone could equal her total of -3 under par for the tournament. Lee-Ann Pace / L.E.T. Lee-Ann had a final round of -1 under par 72, to come from behind and chase down Charley Hull and Carlota Ciganda and win by just one shot. Both Charley and Carlota had birdie attempts on the last hole to force a play-off. Carlota lipped out and Charley grazed the edge of the hole, both of them finishing on -2 under par. Lee-Ann said it was a heart stopping moment; " My heart stopped for a while, for a beat, but you know, if it happens, it happens. We may have had to go to a play-off but I was just hitting some putts and trying not to look. It’s so nice to win again. It’s been a while and to do it again is fantastic. It’s definitely one of the toughest golf courses, also because the greens get quite a lot harder at the end of the week and quicker. It’s a very tight golf course so of course you have to keep the ball in play." Carlota said she had tried hard to win, but congratulated Lee-Ann; " I've been playing good but today wasn't like the days before. I didn't hit the ball that good and I only hit 12 greens compared to 15 or 16 the other days. It was a bit tough but I tried until the end. I finished with one birdie on the last five holes and until the end I was trying to fight, but only one person can win and Lee-Anne played great so congratulations to her." Rookie Charley just seventeen, finished equal second for the third time in as many tournaments. Charley was a bit annoyed with the result but was at least pleased to have at least parred the last hole, the previous three rounds she had bogied it every time; " I’m pleased but just a bit annoyed. At least I parred the last, I didn't play very good on the first 11 holes. The back nine, I played a lot better. I seem to perform better when I’m under pressure and I have to chase, like the last couple of holes. I just edged my putt on 17 and literally edged the hole on 18 and I thought I had it, but it was a good try. I've had three second place finishes in my first three tournaments so I just want to win one now." Charley can not believe her last putt did not drop / L.E.T.
