Morgane Métraux achieved her best result on this level by finishing 10th in her 17th league of the season on the LPGA Tour, improving to 96th in the Medal of Merit.
Looks like Ohio suits the young lady from Lausanne! After claiming a perfect 45th place last weekend in Sylvania, she claims her first 10 places this week in Cincinnati. Her best result so far was 12th in June in Atlantic City. Morgane holds the cards 69, 73, 66 and 70 (-10), sharing 10th place with famous players Jessica Korda, Megan Khan and Arya Jotanugarn. With this impressive performance, Métraux is back in the top 100 in the Medal of Merit as she gets one step closer to her most important goal for her rookie season: retaining the LPGA Tour ticket for next year.
The victory in Cincinnati went to American Ali Ewing (-22), with a narrow shot ahead of China’s Xiu Lin.
“I’m really happy with this result. My first in the top ten, finally! And on top of that, the conditions weren’t favourable, as heavy rain caused the golf course to close earlier in the week. I practically couldn’t train! What makes me happy is that I managed From building on the good feelings that prevailed last week and I didn’t have to correct anything technically. My game was good.”
The player from Golf de Lausanne started the tournament with a solid card of -3: “It was a very good start with good saves and some sparrows. But on Friday I made more mistakes and had less momentum. However, I was glad I made the cut. After the second round I hit a few balls and found a technical trick that helped me throughout the weekend.”
On Saturday, Morgane played his best card of the day (66) and formed around 40 positions: “Because only places in the top 20 earn a lot of points, I decided to play hard. And that paid off. I started again on Sunday with the same position.” I made some small mistakes that cost me a few shots, but I completed very well, especially in the last two holes, which are very long and difficult. And my little “bonus” pride is that I’ve made an exit strike every time I landed in the vault this week. Even with” Fried egg “day 16 today!”
There is also clear progress in the game: “I’ve been working a lot in this area of play in the last few weeks by making small adjustments. The ball rolls better and from there it’s easier for me to find the right pace. In this series of six consecutive tournaments that started last week , I feel privileged to have a good feeling about my entire game. I am at a crucial point in my season, and I have to perform.”
Next week Morgane Métraux will compete at the AmazingCre Portland Classic in Portland, Oregon.
