CHANGES MUST BE MADE
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 womenandgolf.com 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.
