AIG Women’s Open!
This past week was the AIG Women’s Open at Carnoustie! Watching links golf is always so interesting and exciting because it comes with its own sets of challenges and situations. Seeing the best women in the world competing on such an incredible golf course for a historic title was such a fun way to spend one of the last weekends of summer. Seeing them play the course was also extremely exciting given that I have been to Carnoustie (check out this post… http://www.nhgolfergal.com/2018/08/the-open.html?m=1) and have seen some of the difficult scenarios players can encounter.
Seeing all the names atop the leaderboard not only made for an exciting final round but continued to build up excitement for the Solheim Cup coming up! Watching some of the best Europeans in the game making a run combined with American Lizette Salas also making a move was a thrilling Sunday. Danish player Nanna Koertz-Madsen was so close all day before a difficult final hole with a bad break in the bunker. Madelene Sagstrom had a phenomenal week as well, finishing tied for second with Georgia Hall and Lizette! But when it all came down to it Anna Nordqvist came away with her third major championship victory!
Can’t wait to see some of these women tee it up at Inverness in the Solheim Cup! Congratulations to Anna on her victory, and great playing to all on a tough course!
