LETwednesday – total success for the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open 2015

On Wednesday England’s Melissa Reid was a very popular winner of the 2015 Turkish Airlines Ladies Open, an event she had previously won in 2010. It was a convincing and well deserved win as she led from start to finish.

The 27-year-old fired rounds of 65, 69, 74 and 73 at Carya Golf Club in Belek, Antalya, Turkey for a total of 11 under par and a four stroke win over the current leader of the 2015 Order of Merit, France’s Gwladys Nocera.

As she holed the 18th she was drenched with a ‘champagne shower’ by fellow golfers as they shared Melissa’s Turkish delight at winning her fifth Ladies European Tour title.

“When you win you want to win properly and to lead every single day has been nice. I’ve not been in that position before, so to win in that way does make it extra special,” said Reid.

Melissa Reid’s last victory came at the Prague Golf Masters in 2012, which she won a month after the tragic loss of her mother, Joy, and her success in Turkey completed a difficult emotional journey for the popular and talented player.

Following the victory she said she now feels that her game is better than ever:

“I’ve got a fantastic team around me which I can’t give enough credit to and I’ve been working with Kevin Craggs. He’s been amazing and a massive influence not just on my career but on my life. It’s been a difficult journey and it’s not one I want to go through again but it makes the win even sweeter and I’ve stepped it up a bit and it’s just the beginning really.”

The Turkish Airlines Ladies Open was the first major tournament to be played from Sunday to Wednesday instead of the traditional Thursday to Sunday; and the experiment has been hailed as a great success.  Live TV coverage is a must if ladies golf is to grow its audience and popularity and receive the recognition in deserves and in an attempt to suit TV scheduling the Sunday to Wednesday tournament was a success.
Sky Sports showed highlights of the first two days play followed by live coverage on Tuesday and Wednesday, allowing them to concentrate on the BMWPGA Championship at Wentworth come Thursday.

The Ladies European Tour (LET) ran successfully social media campaigns using the hashtags #LETwednesday & #LOVEwednesday and it appears that the first golf tournament on any major golf tour to finish on a Wednesday was a complete success with fans, sponsors and media around the world. So it looks like this revolutionary idea is here to stay.

Laura Davies, Kylie Walker and Sally Watson tied for third place on six under par, while Pamela Pretswell slipped into sixth place after a final round of 78.

Sally Watson
said:

“I am pleased. I was three shots back at the start of the day and with the wind and tough conditions it was tough to put a low score together to catch Melissa. I can’t complain with a third place finish: highest of the year so far.”

Laura Davies said:

“It’s been a great week to be honest with you, I’ve really enjoyed the concept. I love the golf course. I just wish we played it here every year because it’s a great course for the girls and gives us a chance to play some really good golf and make lots of birdies. Mel made more than most of us, but overall I’m really pleased. I had one bad day with the putter and it really cost me dearly, but I’m happy with the way I’m hitting it.”
