If yesterday afternoon was difficult for the Spanish golfers on the grass of the Evian Resort Golf Club in Évian-les-Bains, Friday’s day was disastrous for the three Spaniards. Neither Carlota Ciganda, nor Carmen Alonso nor Ana Peláez they have managed to make the cut and say goodbye with a bitter taste of French grass, in the penultimate major of the LPGA Tour season.
The controversy of the day on Friday had a Spanish accent. Ciganda was disqualified from the tournament for signing an incorrect result when she turned in her card at the end of the second day of the tournament. Charlotte she closed her card with 72 strokes, however, a tournament referee penalized her with two more strokes for slow play. Ciganda did not correctly sign his card and did not put the two sanctions imposed on him by the referees, for which she was automatically disqualified. Carlota was warned the previous afternoon, but it was today when she was sanctioned.
On the other hand, Ana Peláez finished his card with 77 strokes, ten strokes behind the leader, staying far from the +3 that marked the cut. Carmen Alonso was the last Spaniard to finish her cardboard, in which he recorded 76 hits, one more than the previous afternoon, staying at +8, far from the cutoff to move on to Saturday’s session.
