Spain’s Marta Martin fired a strong final round of 72 (par) to claim her first LET Access Series (LETAS) title by a stroke at the Amundi Czech Ladies Challenge. The 26-year-old from Madrid started the last day one shot behind fellow Spaniard Elia Folch from Barcelona. It took another 15 holes for her to tie with England’s Gemma Clews, until she finally won with a dramatic tap in birdie to finish one-under-par for the tournament.

Speaking about the win Martin said: “I mean I cannot believe it still; I had no idea I had the chance to win as I shot three over on the front nine. I just had a good approach shot on 18.  “I have to say I started off a little nervous, so I hit some very bad shots on the front nine, but I had the ability to make a couple good pars. “Then, I just decided to play golf on the back nine and to have fun and when I saw the girls throwing water on me, I honestly did not believe it.”

 Martin was joined in the final group by two other Spaniard’s Elia Folch and Clara Moyano Reigosa alongside Italy’s Lucrezia Colombotto Rosso.

Speaking about playing with other Spaniards Martin said: “I’ve known Clara since I was younger, and I have known Elia for a long time and Lucrezia speaks Spanish, so it was honestly like just playing at home.”
