The player from Navarra stars in a great first day at the Estrella Damm Ladies Open presented by Catalunya and with a card of 65 hits (-7) shares leadership with Sweden's Jessica Karlsson
Carlota Ciganda has made good forecasts that place her as one of the favorites to win in this Estrella Damm Ladies Open presented by Catalunya and has closed the first day at the Terramar Golf Club with a card of 65 hits (-7).
The result of the player from Navarra, right on the day of San Fermín, it has only been able to be equaled by the Swedish Jessica Karlsson. Nine birdies and two bogeys for Carlota Ciganda, and six birdies, an eagle and a bogey for the Nordic golfer.
"I played well", Carlota Ciganda summed up with a smile. “The day was not easy., it was quite windy and the game with the drive has cost me a little, but still i started with three birdies. Then I have given good blows, I've caught quite a few greens and made some good putts.. And the two bogeys I have made I have been able to recover in the final stretch of my lap”.
The golfer from Pamplona looks comfortable in Sitges and that translates into a solid game with hardly any cracks: “When I play in Spain I am happy, I have my family, I am calm and I am able to switch off when I finish my game. Here the atmosphere is more relaxed, I go to the beach for a while… Instead, when i play in usa. I think more about things, even if unintentionally”, confessed.
