The 20-year-old Lon­doner topped the leader­board af­ter day two in Morocco and had vic­tory in her sights go­ing into Sun­day’s fi­nal round when she reeled in leader Suzann Pet­tersen with birdies on the first two holes to sit six un­der.

With a fi­nal-round 70, Dim­mock lost out to Czech Klara Spilkova, who made her fifth birdie of the day at the 13th to tie for the lead and then a six-foot birdie putt on hole 14 for a one-stroke ad­van­tage be­fore win­ning with an eight-un­der 280.

Nor­we­gian Pet­tersen fin­ished one shot be­hind and Dim­mock was a shot fur­ther back to bank €27,000 (£22,600) and lift her to sixth on the Or­der of Merit.

“I feel a bit dis­ap­pointed but over­all, I’m pleased with my week,” Dim­mock told the wom­e­nand­ web­site af­ter her fi­nal round. “I was pretty pleas­antly sur­prised and I got bet­ter every day with my swing. Even to­day, I didn’t hit it well off the tee but I didn’t let it get me down. It was amaz­ing for me to play with Suzann. I learned a lot and next time I’m in this sit­u­a­tion I will be less ner­vous.”

That could be this af­ter­noon (Thurs­day) as the Went­worth pro­fes­sional is due to tee off at 12.45pm lo­cal time in the Estrella Damm Mediter­ranean Ladies Open at the Club de Golf Ter­ra­mar in Sit­ges, Barcelona.

Dim­mock tees off with com­pa­triot Holly Cly­burn and Swe­den’s Camilla Len­narth with the trio set for an 8.30am start to­mor­row and the event clos­ing on Sun­day with a €300,000 to­tal prize pot up for grabs.
