Three more international players have joined the field for the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open starting on Thursday at Royal Adelaide.

Germany's Esther Henseleit dominated the qualifying at the nearby Grange to take the top spot, shooting a 66.

She will be joined by Sweden's Jenny Hagland, who shot 70 today and Russia's Nina Pegova, who shot 71.

Henseleit, 21, missed the cut at the ISPS Handa Vic Open last week but has two professional wins to her name — one on the Ladies European Tour and the other on the LET development series. She is also a former German national amateur champion.

Hagland, 26, has won tournaments on both the LET and the Symetra Tour, America's developmental tour.

Pegova, also 26, won an LET developmental series event last year.

The field at Royal Adelaide this week includes three players in the world's top 10, six in the top 20 and 12 in the top 30. There are 15 major champions playing as the Open comes back to Royal Adelaide for the first time since 2016.
