Europeans grab last 3 spots in Open


Three more European players have grabbed the final places in the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open after qualifying at The Grange (east) today.

Denmark's Nanna Madsen is the best-known of the trio, and she will be joined by Ann-Katherin Lindner of Germany and Leticia Ras Anderica, also of Germany, in the field that tees off on Thursday morning.

Anderica, 22, was tied-13th at the VicOpen at 13th Beach last weekend and is one of the most promising young players on the Ladies European Tour.

Madsen, also 22, already has two wins as a professional and is a regular in Australia.

The final field of 144 players will begin the tournament at 7am on Thursday.
