Connie makes a move in Pro Ranks with 7th place finish in Helsinki

South African Rookie Connie Chen recorded her best results of the European Professional Season when she finished in seventh place in the LET Finair Masters played at Hensinki Golf Club, Tali, Finland yesterday.

Chen carded 207 (73, 66, 68) to finish five shots behind the leader, Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall on 202 (69, 65, 68).

Lee-Anne Pace was another two strokes back, tied ninth on 209.

Chen, who gained only a partial exemption to the European tour at the qualifying school in Portugal in December, was one of the three leading players in the field of the Finair Masters that was not exempt to earn a place at the Ricoh Women’s British Open to be played at the end of July.
