Lavaux Ladies Championship 2019 on the LET Access Preview & 4 players to watch
Course: Golf de Lavaux
Prize Fund: € 50,000
Defending Champion: Fanny Cnops (Bel) (-7)
The Access Series returns to Switzerland and to the beautiful Golf De Lavaux where Fanny Cnops picked up her first win last year. Below we look at 4 players who could pick up the trophy this week!
Lynn Carlsson (Sweden)
After spending some of the first round at the Jabra Ladies Open following Carlsson it is clear to see she is playing well and if it wasn't for a few missed puts at the end of her first round she would have been challenging at the top of the leaderboard. Her 2nd round of 68 showed what she is capable of.
Currently 24th on the LET order of merit and 277th in the world Carlsson certainly has the game to win here this week. She finished 2nd at the NSW Open in Australia earlier in the year and will make her first start on the Access Series this year this week. Definitely one to watch if the putter is hot.
Emie Peronnin (France)
Emie told us last year she celebrated winning the Vasteras Open by jumping out a plane! i wonder what she will do this year if she is triumphant.
Currently 7th on the rookie of the year on the LET, her season didnt get off to the best start missing a few cuts in Australia and back on the access series at the Terre Blanche. However, since then she has been making cuts on the LET and has just been let down by the odd bad round. She started well in Spain a few weeks ago but just faded off. She was 54th last week at Evian. Emie finished 2nd here last year 3 shots behind Cnops and will look to go one better this year.

Diksha Dagar (India)
A first time winner this year on the LET at the age of 18 Dagar will also make her LET Access debut this week. She won the South African Open earlier in the year and has also had 2 top 20's and has not missed a single cut. The left hander from India is another player who has the game to win this week.
She has a good team partnership with her dad on the bag and is 10th on the Order of Merit on the LET. She is also 2nd in the rookie of the year race and can still give Esther a run for her money come the end of the season. Her results have seen her climb to 329th in the world and she is player that looks to have a bright future ahead of her.
Annelie Sjoholm (Sweden)
Our 2nd Swedish pick is Annelie Sjoholm who was unlucky in the last LET Access event where she was defeated in a playoff. She missed the cut at the Terre Blanche Open but did finish 25th back on the LET at the South African Open. We are seeing a lot of first time winners this year on the Access Series and Annelie could make up for her defeat last time out this week. She finished 17th here last year which included a 68 in round 2.
