Moroccan golfers have recently signed a series of performances which are the fruit of the new strategic orientations of the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation (FRMG), inspired by His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid.
According to a press release from the FRMG, the great news comes to us from Walnut Creek Golf Preserve -Westminster- Colorado where Malak Bouraeda, player from the FRMG Elites Pole, brilliantly won the only place in play in the qualifying tournament at the 77th edition of the US Women’s Open (historical fact) which will take place from June 2 to 5 at the Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in North Carolina.
The resident of the University of Colorado won, thanks to a total score of -1 in two rounds (9 and 10 May) and thus becomes the first Arab player to be on the starting list of this prestigious tournament, welcomes FRMG.
Another national star shone this week. This is Inès Laklalech who, freshly arrived on the Ladies European Tour, signs an excellent 8th place (-13) at the Madrid Ladies Open with a score of -8 the last round, reports the Federation.
This performance, which comes at the right time for the player, from the Excellence Cell of the FRMG, who will try next Monday (May 16), to also obtain an entry to the US Women’s Open, during the event qualifier which will be played in London, specifies the press release.
On the Junior side, the Federation notes the performance of Nora Ghadi (13 years old) winner twice, including on May 1 at the Winterpark Championship in Orlando and Ryan Benqlilou (16 years old), player from the Elite Pole of the FRMG based in Orlando, who offers a second victory on the Hurricane Golf Junior Tour at Eagle Creek and crowns a very prolific first half of May for national golf.
These performances confirm the FRMG in its new sports policy inspired by the American model with the aim of making Morocco a breeding ground for very high level golfers, we conclude.
