Manon de Roey, Belgian No. 1 and currently No. 3 on the Ladies European Tour, will be one of the attractions at the Mithra Ladies Open this weekend at Golf de Naxhelet. Already there to train, Antwerper are in great shape before playing at home. “I don’t feel so much pressure…”, says Manon DeRoey. “After my tournament win in Bangkok and my 7th place last week at the Jabra Ladies Open in Evian, I am very confident in my game at the moment. I am confident in my shots and I want to continue this momentum. I am going into this tournament like any other competition, but of course I am delighted that my relatives can come to see me.
In the 18-hole Wanzois opened in 2014, the competition promises to be tough with the presence of 126 players (full list of participants), including some of the best on the European circuit such as Britain’s Dame Laura Jane Davies (85 wins among professionals).
