This Year’s Tipsport Czech Ladies Open with Klára Spilková
The brightest star of Czech golf will not be missing on the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open held next week. Klára Spilková has accepted the invitation to play in Beroun from promoter Luboš Koželuh, and so the Ladies European Tour (28 to 30 August) may look forward to receiving the series tournament winner and LPGA member.
“I am happy that I will play before Czech fans after a long time. This will be my first start on the Ladies European Tour this year, but I will play in a familiar place so I look forward to it very much. I am not familiar with the course in the Beroun Golf Club down to every detail, but I have practice rounds to get to know it better,” said Klára Spilková.
The Tipsport Czech Ladies Open was naturally interested in having Klára Spilková, a Lalla Meryem Cup winner. In the end, the promoters managed to secure her start in the tournament despite Klára’s tight August schedule, when the Czech golfer will be after a four-tournament streak, two in the US and two in Scotland.
“I am glad that we have agreed and Klára chose to accept our invitation. She knew about the event since April, so it was really about how the limited golf season would play out in terms of organizing the tournament. Thanks to Klára Spilková, the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open now has a sound name in the starting list that fans know the best. The most prestigious Czech golf competition thus again increased in quality. The second year of the tournament will have an even better line-up,” said the promoter Luboš Koželuh, Premier Sports.
The starting list of the tournament, with 200,000 euros prize money, was also expanded by other Czech golfers. The already confirmed golf professionals – Kateřina Vlašínová, Šideri Váňová, Lucie Hinnerová, Eva Koželuhová, Kristýna Napoleaová – were also joined by Kateřina Krásová.
Of amateurs, the tournament will welcome Sára Kousková, Jana Melichová, Tereza Melecká, Patricie Macková, Tereza Koželuhová, Kristýna Frýdlová, and Gabriela Roberta Vítů. The promoter still has three vacant places to be filled during the course of the week.
