Lisa Pettersson, results

On the course of the Allerum Golf Club (par 72) in Ödåkra in Sweden, the home athlete fought until the final holes against the Spanish Trivino.

An eagle on the 18th hole (par 5) allowed the Swede to narrowly beat the Iberian and proclaim herself champion. Lisa Pettersson was born in Täby, in the county of Stockholm, in 1995. Having practiced various sports, she only approached golf at the age of 15.

After her first studies, the Swede went to live in the United States where she played golf with the East Carolina University team between 2014 and 2018, graduating in Economics. With this title, the Swede takes a big leap forward in the Race To Costa Del Sol (order of merit) finishing in 7th place.

For her a check for 45,000 euros on a prize pool of 300,000. Sweden is a member state of the European Union, located in the Scandinavian Peninsula. It borders Norway to the west and Finland to the northeast; it is bordered by the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Bothnia to the east, and by the straits of Skagerrak and Kattegat to the southwest; the Öresund strait, which separates Sweden from Denmark, has been crossed since 2000 by the homonymous bridge which connects the two countries between Malmö and Copenhagen respectively.

With a surface area of 449,964 km², Sweden is the fifth largest state in political Europe after Russia, Ukraine, France and Spain, as well as the third largest in the Union. It stretches over 1 500 km as the crow flies from north to south.

Population density is low and tends to be concentrated in major cities. The internal territory is mostly occupied by forests. The state is rich in natural resources (timber, iron, water) and the Swedish economy allows the population to enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world: Sweden is firmly in the top positions in the UN Human Development Rankings.
