The Valencian Cloe Amión (+4 in total) is the first winner of 2024 in the women’s competitions section. The player from the National Blume School has prevailed in the Andalusian Cup in a tight finish on the Cadiz course of La Hacienda Links, to which the Guipuzcoan María Bastarrica (+6) and the Castellon Rocío Tejedo (+7) have also contributed.

Cloe Amión, a golfer on the rise since she won the Spanish U18 Championship last year, has relied on solidity to overcome the 75 of her first round with two subsequent tremendously consistent rounds crowned by a birdie at hole 18.

María Bastarrica, for her part, has completed what is possibly her best performance in a National Ranking event. The new golfer from the University of Texas has finished the week with a 74 that has helped her to surpass the current world number 12, Rocío Tejedo, condemned this Friday by her six bogeys. Those of holes 13 and 14 practically ended her chances of retaining the title.

In addition, honourable mention for Marina Joyce (+8), Balma Dávalos (+10), the players who have completed the Top 5, and for other players such as Alba González (+13), María Purroy (+14) or Clara Sanchiz (+14), who have completed a notable week on the Andalusian course.

Cloe Amión, dominant after the second day

Cloe Amión herself took the lead at the end of the first 36 holes with a round at par that allowed her to face the final round with a slim lead. The Levantine signed a round only marred by a birdie and a bogey. She was followed in the ranking by a single stroke by María Bastarrica, Marina Joyce -signer of the best round of the day, with 70 strokes (-2)- and Rocío Tejedo. Martina López-Lanchares and Julia Ballester, two strokes off the lead, also entered the group of main contenders for victory.

Julia Ballester herself was one of the two leaders early on Thursday. The other was the Barcelona native Júlia Gelmà, who dropped out after investing 80 strokes. Both were the most outstanding on Wednesday’s round, when normality was restored after the suspension of Tuesday’s round due to heavy rain.

Remember that the test, valid for the World Ranking and for the U18 and U16 National Rankings 2024, was reduced to 54 holes after the rain dates. At the end of those first 36 holes, a cut was established that fifty golfers surpassed.

Ana Peláez, at the top of the winners

The Malaga native Ana Peláez, winner in the 2013, 2020 and 2021 editions, is the great reference in the winners of the Andalusian Women’s Cup, where María Parra (2015 and 2016) and Rocío Tejedo (2022 and 2023) appear with two victories. Mention also for other winners such as the Balearic Nuria Iturrioz (2014), the Catalans Ivon Reijers (2017) and Laura Pasalodos (2018) and the Castellon Carla Tejedo (2019).
