Bregman Fires Early Season Warning

South Africa’s Stacy Lee Bregman tied for third with Sweden’s Camilla Lennarth at the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters, where American Cheyenne Woods captured her first pro title with a two shot victory at RACV Royal Pines Resort in Queensland.

Bregman dropped two shots on her outward nine, but eliminated the damage with gains at the 14th, 16th and 18th holes to close with a 72. Lennarth, meanwhile, came home in three under 69 to join Bregman on 12-under-par 280.

The pair finished four shots behind Woods, who held off a spirited charge from Australian amateur Minjee Lee and claimed the glory with a final round 69.

Bregman had a solid 2013 and the joint third finish following closely on a top 15 placing at the season-opening in New Zealand.

The fast start has shot Bregman to second in the rankings and bodes well for the Johannesburg pro, who is chasing a first win in her eighth season on the Ladies European Tour.

Fellow South African Ashleigh Simon was at the lower end of the leaderboard after an opening 74, but showed that she is shaking the rest of the festive period off with a final round 70 to tie for 39th on one-with compatriot, former LET number one Lee-Anne Pace, among others. Pace closed with a 72.
