Tvesa Malik recorded another superb result, finishing T-12 with a final round of 1-under-70 at the Lacoste Ladies Open de France 2021. She finished with rounds of 69-70-70 for 4 under 208 while Céline Boutier became champion after taking the victory in the most spectacular way at the Golf Club du Médoc.
Tvesa, who knocked on the doors of a first triumph and finished second at the Gant Ladies Open in July. Last week she was T-11 at the Swiss Ladies Open and this season she had three Top-10s.
The Hero backed golfer had three birdies in the eighth through 10th and two bogeys in the fourth and 12th. After a week’s break, Tvesa will be back for the Estrella Damm championship in Spain.
Two-time Solheim Cup winner Boutier kept her cool on a frenzied final day in Bordeaux, before making a fantastic birdie putt on the last one to clinch victory over Scottish Kylie Henry.
The two players went neck and neck for much of Saturday’s final, heads changing hands throughout the day. Both were ten cents when they tied for 18th.
Henry ran out of his second shot on the last hole, but Boutier hit the green in half, before pitching a 20-foot putt with his third stroke to send the locals celebrating.
It was a special moment for Boutier, who made her first professional appearance at the tournament in 2016 – before finishing second behind Nelly Korda in 2019 – and she was thrilled to clinch the victory in front of her home crowd.
