Third place was tied between Ville Ahokas (-10 today) and Joonas Aalto (-9). Finnish invasion was completed with also the three following positions went to Finnish players. The best Danish player was Hjalte Jensen (8th) and best Swede Johan Larsson (11th).
In FPO Rachel Turton had a solid lead of ten strokes before the final round. Three solid rounds (+2, +5 and +3) was enough for Rachel to be crowned the first FPO champion in the European Pro Tour.
The battle for second place between Camilla Kampen and Heidi Laine was very exciting. Camilla had a two stroke gap before the final round. Heidi managed to tie on hole seven, but Camilla took it back again on the next hole. The battle was tight to last hole and the results were not solved until the last putts. Only one throw separated these two for Heidi’s benefit.
