With Title from Ireland to Aramco Team Series
As the winner of the last Ladies European Tour tournament in Ireland, Klára Spilková joins the prestigious Aramco Team Series European competition, which is again played in New York.
The Czech No. 1 is among fifteen LET champions this year who are starting in the competition’s limited field of 78 female golfers. It also includes invited LPGA stars Nelly and Jessica Korda, Brooke Henderson and Lexi Thompson.
From October 13 to 15, the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, overlooking Manhattan, will host a tournament for a total of $1 million in prize money, which will be split in half for the individual and team competitions.
Thanks to her recent tournament title, Klára Spilková became captain of one of the 26 three-member teams that play the competition over two rounds.
“I chose Finland’s Ursula Wikström for my team, with whom we are friends and we have played quite a lot together this year. Spain’s Maria Hernández was assigned to us as third, and like every team, we got one more amateur,” said the only Czech player in the starting field.
For the currently 15th player in the Race to Costa del Sol rankings (after only four starts in Europe this year), this is Klara Spilková’s first ever appearance in the Aramco Team Series.
“I’m happy it is held in New York. We will play on a beautiful links court, which is in perfect condition. It has plenty of bunkers, some even in the middle of the fairways. It will require solid play and course management,” added the Czech professional. The event will be broadcast over all three days on O2 TV Sport, with the first two rounds from 19:00 to 23:00 and the final from 18:00 to 22:00 CET.
