Alexandra Foersterling

Alexandra Försterling fired the round of the day producing a 67 (-6) on day four to lead by two shots at La Manga Club.

On the fourth day of the Final Qualifier at LET Q-School, the German golfer rolled in birdies on four and six before making three consecutively on holes eight through ten.

The 23-year-old added another birdie on 13 before dropping a shot on 15 and finishing her day with a birdie on 18 to lead with a total of 15-under-par.

“The best part of my game was definitely the putting,” said Försterling. “Even the people in my group said I putted really well. It was like the hole was a magnet for my ball, it was fun. I had a good roll on it and a lot of putts went in.

“I’m just enjoying the weather a lot, compared to Germany it’s a treat being here and having a little bit of sun before going back. That’s probably what I’ve been enjoying the most and actually out on the course and seeing my ball flight. Before I came here, I didn’t see my ball flight at all, so it’s nice.

“Last week I was playing the South Course twice in the wind and I thought it was the harder one out of the two. I probably had a little bit more respect for the South, but today I became friends with it! I will try to do the same things as today and focus on one shot at a time and one hole at a time.”

Försterling played in two LET events in the summer, finishing T17 at the Big Green Egg Open and T4 at the VP Bank Swiss Ladies Open, and the German is hoping she can secure her card for the 2023 season.

She explained: “It was definitely my goal to come here and secure one of the cards. That was one of my main goals and we have one day left, so we’ll see.

“When I played those two tournaments during the summer, I just had so much fun. Everybody was so nice; the atmosphere was amazing and that’s one of the main reasons why I want to play on the LET. I want to secure a couple of wins and have a good career.”

In second place on 13-under-par is Germany’s Polly Mack after she carded a round of level par on the South Course.

“It was obviously a little difficult as my scorecard tells,” said Mack. “It was a little bit windier, and the pins were a little harder than the past couple of days.

“Since we didn’t play the last few days in the wind, it was a little more challenging today but I’m still looking forward to tomorrow. I was struggling a little bit in my long game; it wasn’t quite as good as yesterday or the past few days. I hope I will…
