SLOVAKIA can now boast of a woman golfer winning a title in the prestigious Ladies’ European Tour.

Zuzana Kamasová, 32, achieved her winning round on April 3 at the Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco when she overcame French golfer Alexandra Bonetti by two strokes as well as beating third place Caroline Masson from Germany, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote.

She improved markedly from her previous best – ninth place at a tournament in China three years ago.

She was able to take part in the recent tournament only by invitation since she had lost automatic entry due to poor results last year. Her victory brought a €40,000 payday.
